Earth Day is almost here! It’s a balmy, sunny, near perfect day in Los Angeles. What better weather to start Earth Day weekend?
There are tons of cool events going on all around Los Angeles today and though the weekend in honor of Earth Day a UN designated day since 1969 to celebrate Earth’s natural environment.
Whether you’re in Los Angeles on vacation or you’re just a local Angeleno looking for something to do, we recommend Santa Monica as this year’s destination for Earth Day! There are events basically everywhere in Los Angeles, but who can pass up the idea of a stroll down beautiful Santa Monica pier with the sun and waves and sand..some of the most beautiful Mother Earth has to offer!
Not to mention we have a tour that will drop you off there so you don’t have to worry about getting there or sitting in traffic…it’s honestly the best way to get to the Westside. (Just check out Beach and Shopping Tours on our site.)
So here are a couple of events going on in Santa Monica that you can add on to a Santa Monica trip:
Stand Up For Clean Water Festival & Paddleboard Race
This is a festival and paddleboard race a happening tomorrow, April 21. (Paddleboards? Heehee.) Situated right next to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica beach, you couldn’t pick a better event. Not to mention that all proceeds from the Paddleboard race benefit the Santa Monica Baykeeper and some important people like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will be there to speak…really, you can’t go wrong!
