Greetings and welcome to this weeks edition from Pacific Park
in beautiful Santa Monica, California. Built in 1909 the pier almost met the wrecking ball in the early 70's but locals refused to let it go which forced the city council to create the Pier Restoration Corporation. The carousel building, known as the Hippodrome was designated a L.A. County historical landmark by Uncle Sam.
Today the Pier is made up of kiddie and family attractions and houses several restaurants including Bubba Gumps. Speaking of Gumps, ever wonder if they serve fresh fish? Does Hot Dog on a Stick sell all beef hot dogs? Well, you're in luck! I have that answer to those questions and many other's so get ready, it's gonna be a blast!
