So in other words Santa Monica isn't a good place for a family?

By the way, I dont have any kids, but I am just asking in general

no, i'm sure there are families w/kids. but with the pier and all the adult hijinx that goes on around there (in a good way ), i find la jolla a lot more squeaky clean & family friendly

personally, i'd take santa monica which is pretty much l.a. a great section at that..

I like Santa Monica lifestyle better
it has as good or even better restaurants, clubs or shopping you could find in La JOlla without that Stepford's Wives vive to it

La Jolla. SaMo is nice, but La Jolla is smaller, cleaner and more beautiful. Plus, better beaches in SD than LA.

Santa Monica. La Jolla is bland comfort.

Santa Monica is an awesome place for people of all ages. Family-friendly fun during the day and bar hopping adult-madness at night. Love this city.

I'm amazed that so many people picked Santa Monica. Every time I'm driving south from L.A. I keep thinking "Thank God I'm out of that HELL".

Cons for SM: traffic; surrounded by ghettos, gangland and crazies (Disclaimer: never lived there, just visited a few times)
