Parking is plentiful and reasonable in Santa Monica so youre probably better off parking there and cycling/walking between the two. As others have said they have very different vibes so do a little research. You could drive up some of the coast too before joining the freeway out to Glendale.

I think based on your.comments and the links from landandword17 that we will happily fill our day in santa Monica and Venice beach and probably don't need a plan but can just go with the flow 😁

It was a really nice way to see the coast and we would do it again. You can cycle all the way to long beach if you so desire as its one big cycle route but we were too lazy for that.
Can I ask how long it took to cycle from Santa Monica to Venice Beach? Thanks

350 miles an 8 hours each way is one hell of a drive

It's a lovely scenic drive though, stop off at Solvang and Carmel, maybe Santa Barbara as well. What more could you ask for.
