Back in Santa Monica for a few days, I was at the Donut King on at 3 separate occasions, each time with one goal: the chocolate chip bar. The chocolate chip bar is like an oversized glazed donut, layered with a thick coating of chocolate-chip...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
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
