I have shown you the nice sunshine and bodies in Part 1 of Santa Monica post. Now let’s explore what else are the fun activities at the beach front.
Santa Monica. The song with the same name by Savage Garden always rings in my ears when I hear the name of this sunshine beach.
Getty Center is part of the J. Paul Getty Museum, where it displayed some of the finest pieces of art. One of the most recognizable collections would be Irises (1889) by Vincent van Gogh.
It is hard for layman like me to appreciate art, so we use auction or market value to indicate the appreciated value of art :). Irises is worth USD105 million. There were many tourists walked pass this masterpiece without realizing it.
If you are art lovers, Getty Center will be a pilgrimage site in North America.
There are several galleries in the J. Paul Getty Museum. Good news to tourists who like photography is that the museum allows non-flash photography. The second good news is that the West Pavilion is dedicated as the Center of Photographs.
I decided to go to this market when I read about it on the plane to Los Angeles.
Los Angeles down town is kind of boring. Olvera Street is one of the more interesting streets in LA.
