Take in the gorgeous view of Santa Monica Bay at the lush Palisades Park.
Palisades Park is a gorgeously situated, mile-and-a-half-long stretch of grass. Set atop the sandstone cliffs above the ocean, this lush park has lots of palm trees, tremendous ocean views and many benches and picnic tables. Look out for free yoga lessons in the park, or simply stroll around and take in the views of the beautiful rose garden. It's the perfect place to relax and soak in California's almost too-perfect weather while planning your next big activity.
