I'm going to Santa Monica for the first time this weekend and I'm wondering what I should see/do. I've read some other posts on the subject and the pier seems to be the one thing everyone mentions but I'm hoping there's more than that. If I'm looking to do some shopping, dvds, a digital camera maybe, are there any places in particular that I should go to? I'm looking forward to it because I haven't been out west for years so I don't want to miss out on any good stuff. Coming from Canada too makes the shopping more tantalizing. Thanks.
