Santa Monica Bay – Its History, Lifestyle and Beauty
The beauty of Santa Monica Bay comprises 14 distinct communities – from Malibu to Palos Verdes and everything in between. Malibu Discovery offers seven memorable tours that allow visitors and locals to experience the history, lifestyle and beauty of the region.
From its early days in the 1900s, Santa Monica and Venice Beach have been a haven for tourists, movie making, celebrity homes and recreation. Rancho Malibu became famous when the owners started selling properties to their celebrity friends in the 1930s, including Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and Gloria Swanson. Additionally, such events as The Battle of Santa Monica Bay (complete with gangsters), Venice of America and the Douglas Aircraft Factory all shaped Santa Monica’s unique history.
Today, Santa Monica Bay is a thriving beachside community – rated as one of the Top Ten Beach Communities in the World. Whatever Tour you choose, you’ll discover happiness all along the way.
