About Santa Monica

Santa Monica, also known as the “City by the Sea” and the “Pearl of the Pacific”, was founded in 1875. Santa Monica is more than just a beach town. It also is made of mountains, canyons, and rolling hills in a part of Southern California with some of the most agreeable year-round climate.

Santa Monica is a leader in sustainability. To learn more about the city’s commitment to environmental consciousness, click below.

History

The region's first inhabitants, The Gabrieleno San Gabriel Band of Mission Indians, also known as the Gabrielino, Tongva, and Kizh, occupied the entire Los Angeles Basin and the islands of Santa Catalina, San Nicholas, San Clemente, and Santa Barbara — from the mountains to the sea. Originally founded as a home for Japanese and African Americans, Santa Monica has grown and evolved from a small seaside outpost to a diverse, thriving community. The city is now known for such iconic locations as Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade and Inkwell Beach.
