This amusement park is located in Buena Park and requires a rather lengthy stint on the 101 S that eventually becomes the 5. If there are problems ahead, get off the 101 S at the Pomona Freeway exit and get onto the 60 E. From there enter the 710 S, cross over to the 105 E and then merge onto the 605 S. Get onto the 91 E and exit at Beach Boulevard. It only adds about five minutes to the drive (on paper) and sounds a lot more complicated than it really is.

A favorite spot for Angelenos and visitors to the city alike, the Santa Monica Pier is almost a clear shot down the 10 W. That being said, problems commonly arise between Robertson Boulevard and exit 1A. It is possible to use surface streets, namely Robertson to National Boulevard. From there get onto Palms and turn right onto Sawtelle. Make a left onto Olympic and stay on this road for a while until reaching Fifth. From there it is local traffic (which in ‘beach city speak’ means: lots of one way streets, traffic lights and pedestrians).
