“The artifacts below are souvenirs we love, some for obvious reasons, some for associated memories known to only to ourselves. We asked readers to share (and added a few from Times staffers) because this seems like a good time to remind ourselves of where we’ve been…. ‘I had never been to the pier so we went, we rode the Ferris wheel, and he pumped more money into playing the games to win me plush-toy prizes, including “Rasta Banana” and a one-eyed monster.'”

“The colourful silhouette of the 85-foot Ferris wheel as the sun sets is truly a sight to see. It’s no wonder this is such a famous place to watch the sunset in California. The Santa Monica Pier, at the end of the historic Route 66 in Santa Monica, actually consists of two piers: one built in 1909 and the other in 1916. The second pier is home to the famous Pacific Park, which houses the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel.”

“The Santa Monica Pier and surrounding beach, often used for TV and movie scenes, are a must-see. On the sand near the pier, locals and visitors can show off their skills bouncing on a springy tightrope, rolling across the sand in giant inflatable “hamster balls” and swinging on giant monkey bars. On the pier, enjoy the rides at Pacific Park throughout the day and into the night. Restaurants and shops help entertain those who might be less ride-inclined.”
