Even though L.A. and Santa Monica almost merge together, the spectacular beach city of Santa Monica is undoubtedly a separate entity. Here you will spot celebrities, surfers, business professionals and hordes of students, all drawn to the endless summer and sunshine that the city offers with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. The laid-back lifestyle is much more distinct here than it is in its pulsating neighbor Los Angeles. This balance between the relaxing beach and the glamour of Hollywood makes Santa Monica an excellent destination for your TEFL/TESOL course.
Even for Americans, California is known as one of the most attractive states to live in and it also draws in countless visitors from across the world every year. The most famous attraction in Santa Monica is its pier, built over 100 years ago in 1906. The city also marks the end of the famous route 66, which goes from Chicago, Illinois, all the way down to the pier in Santa Monica over a total of 2,451 miles (3,945 km). Left and right off the pier lies a beachfront area of 3.5 miles of pure golden sand where surfing culture has developed since the 30’s. Today, it is also a popular spot for picnics, cycling and working out. Many famous TV shows and movies have also been set here, including the Terminator, Gilmore Girls, 90210, Castle, Star Trek, Grey’s Anatomy, and many more.
