Founded in 1875 by John P. Jones on the site of the land grant of Don Francisco Sepulveda and incorporated in 1886, Santa Monica established itself 100 years ago as resort community. Located on the Pacific Ocean due west of downtown Los Angeles at the crossroads of the Pacific Coast Highway and Interstate 10. Today, it's a sophisticated beach town with high-tech entertainment, luxury hotels, high-profile corporate headquarters and some of the finest shopping in southern California. Notable attractions include the famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade and scenic Ocean Avenue.
