Santa Monica Stairs

The Santa Monica Stairs are a must-know if you’re a fitness buff living on the west side of Los Angeles. Located in a quiet, upscale residential area, the 370-step public staircase attracts a large crowd every weekend. People range from those who are preparing for an Iron Man or Tough Mudder, to those who are here to enjoy the refreshing morning weather. Some are former Olympians, while some others are here to see and be seen. Regardless, everyone huffs and puffs towards the light at the top, only to turn around and start at the bottom again.
