Santa Monica Voted #7 Beach City By National Geographic
Our friends at LA Snark tipped us off to the fact that Santa Monica was ranked #7 in a list of the world's top ten beach cities by National Geographic. Woot!Our local city-by-the-beach joins the ranks of Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and, coming in at number one, Barcelona. The website had this to say:
With 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers) of broad, sandy beaches, a fresh ocean breeze, and progressive vibe, Santa Monica has long been a magnet for the Hollywood set. In the 1920s, movie moguls and starlets partied at Club Casa Del Mar; today, celebrities dodge the paparazzi at the Shutters on the Beach hotel. Join a volleyball game, look for sea lions, or just watch the Pacific rollers crash on the beach.
