The 25 acre lush Palisades Park overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is a fantastic place for people watchers, bikers, walkers and connects with the broad Santa Monica Beach where you can enjoy the pier, bike paths and lots of shops and restaurants. Ocean Ave. (from Colorado Ave. to San Vicente Blvd.) in Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Will Rogers State Beach is a beautiful stretch of beach with views up the coast to Malibu and down the coast to Palos Verdes. There is generally plenty of parking but a little pricey on summer weekends. $12, or you can just park on Temescal Canyon and walk down. Paved bike paths connect to Venice Beach and beyond. The beach is clean with restrooms and showers. This beach just seems to be in a good location, kind of in the middle of everything. 16000 block of Pacific Coast Highway, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Pacific Palisades is primarily a residential area, with a mixture of apartments, condominiums, small usually older houses and large private homes. There were lots of television shows and movies filmed in Pacific Palisades, like Baywatch (filmed on Will Rogers Beach), Rockford Files, Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan (filmed at Palisades Charter High School), Curb Your Enthusiasm (filmed in the real-life residence of Larry David), and Food Network's, Everyday Italian is filmed on El Medio Ave.
The park itself is a great place for a picnic, a stroll or just hang out and take in the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. It's pretty clean and manicured and my favorite part about this park, besides the views is the palm trees.
