The colorful Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel
As a young kid I recall visiting the Santa Monica Pier and it was dull and run down, but seems today it’s so colorful. I guess the attendance and money from millions of tourists each year have paid off for the pier. I also wasn’t aware that the ferris wheel is part of the amusement park on the pier called Pacific Park. I guess as a visitor, its all simply the Santa Monica pier rides, shops, etc.
You can read a complete history of the pier and the ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier’s web site.
Ferris wheels are always being photographed, we’ve featured others here in the past, like this night shot of the Irvine Spectrum Ferris Wheel. And I’m sure we’ll have more in the future.
