Sand. Waves. Beach. And gymnastics! A ton of equipment just out in the world, free for all to use. Spending time at the beach is just uh-maz-ing! Nature, rejuvenation – I LOVE IT. The funny thing is, I only discovered the Santa Monica Rings recently. It’s the Original Muscle Beach, located just south of Santa Monica Pier, where people come together to have fun and get exercise at the same time.
Watch others show off their talents on the rings, beams, bars, and ropes and give it a go yourself! You might be stronger than you think. Play, people watch, or get a tan. You can also rent bikes, walk, and take a stroll. The last time I was there, I easily spent the entire day at the beach. If you are there on a Sunday, you can even check out the acro yoga community on the grass area from late noon to sundown. Free entertainment, exercise, and nature…who could ask for a better day?
Bonus: there’s also a kids area.
