Downtown Santa Monica with palm trees

Remember Santa Monica With a Walk

It’s warmer than usual in Santa Monica as spring makes its far-flung way across the eastern half of the country. Change into something lightweight and show your appreciation with an afternoon out of doors.

More than 130 years of local history is at your fingertips when you embark on a walking tour of downtown Santa Monica. Led by the Santa Monica Conservancy’s friendly docents, this two-hour tour will talk your family through the city’s Wild West beginnings before ultimately arriving at the modern metropolis of today. Enjoy a close look at the vision Santa Monica’s civic leaders put forward for their growing city, and then size up the downtown district’s architectural splendor, a heritage that includes the Rapp Saloon of 1875. Opened the same year as Santa Monica’s founding, the saloon eventually served as our first city hall.
