Coney Island And The Santa Monica Pier

Two amusement parks on the ocean at each end of America. Must have been weird to drive from one to the other seeing that Elmer Gantry, Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Jack Kerouac, Betsy Ross America pass by in the never stopping long winding days and  happy/sad boozy neon nights of all of America in between.

Built in 1939, the bridge connecting Ocean Avenue to the Santa Monica Pier is nearing the end of its useful life and will be replaced.

For some people The Santa Monica Pier is the “actual” end of Route 66, and America.
