My friend and I wondered ahead of our visit to Candytopia that it would be childish, but it really wasn't. The candy re-creations of The Scream, The Thinker, etc were fantastic. The photo-ops were fun. Candy to take with you in every room. Staff who...More

Fun, something different. Candy samples in every room. Art objects made out of candy. The last stop is the marshmallow pit in which you take off your shoes and get in a pit of fake marshmallows. Make sure you take a camera. At 30.00 an...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
