: Sunset Blvd.
Just a few miles east of the beach house is Santa Monica's upscale shopping center and 3rd St. Promenade with great restaurants, movie theaters and nightlife. For kids and adults, there's also the Santa Monica pier with its ferris wheel and rides. World class surfing is less than a mile away at Topanga Beach, and famous Surfirider Beach is only a few miles to the west. In winter, daring surfers catch the big waves at Tuna, just yards from our oceanfront deck. Downtown Malibu with its designer shops, luxurious movie theatre, and fine restaurants is only five miles up the coast. In the Santa Monica mountains across the street, you'll find great hiking and mountain biking. Or rent bikes at the Santa Monica strand and ride on the beach bike trail for ten or more miles down the coast.
