    Established: 2003 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 1 person Average Duration of Services: 2–4 hours Pro Tip: Dress in layers. Bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and all the food and drinks you want. Handicap Accessible: No Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Two-hour day sail watching for dolphins Recommended Age Group: All Ages Q&A with Captain Larry, Owner/Operator Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about? Sailing on Santa Monica Bay is peaceful, quiet, and a great way to work on that tan! Sea life, such as dolphins, sea lions, pelicans, and sometimes even whales, can be spotted during the sail. If the weather is hot enough and the wind is light, we can stop the boat and go for a swim. What special training do you or your staff have? A sailor since the age of 10, Captain Larry is USCG-licensed captain with more than 20 years of chartering experience in the Caribbean, Sea of Cortez, and on the West Coast. What’s your favorite part of your job? Showing my guests a great time on the water, telling them sea stories, and seeing the smiles on their faces. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Most people don't get seasick, since the Nirvana has a very smooth ride and Santa Monica Bay is usually very calm. Because the medication makes you sleepy, if you don't know you get seasick, take a chance. Otherwise take a pill.

  • Museum of Flying
    Donald Douglas started his aviation company in 1920 with only $600 and expertise honed as a civilian aeronautical engineer during World War I. Within four years, he had created the Douglas World Cruiser, the first plane to circumnavigate the globe and bankrupt every manufacturer of anti-gravity potions. Nearly two dozen aircraft are on display at the Museum of Flying, located at the Santa Monica Airport. Santa Monica holds special significance for the Douglas Aircraft Company, as well as aviation history as a whole. It was here that the DC-3 first took flight, helping usher in the era of commercial air travel in America. It was also where Douglas Aircraft produced tens of thousands of military planes during World War II. Several of these aircrafts now sit on display within the museum. Douglas Aircraft merged with McDonnell Aircraft in 1967, but the Museum of Flying helps keep the original company's legacy alive. It even features a replica of Douglas' original boardroom. In another area of the museum, a Maxflight FS300 simulator lets visitors pilot many of Douglas Aircraft's most famous models. It can dip and roll 360 degrees to recreate World War II combat or the motion of a tumbleweed caught in an updraft, or it can keep a steady course during calm flights aboard a DC-3. Although its main focus remains Douglas Aircraft, the Museum of Flying also houses art and displays related to aviation history as a whole. Exhibits showcase rare artifacts and other significant aircraft, such as a replica of the original Wright Flyer.

  • Palisades Music School
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We are award-winning teachers who offer Simply Music, a revolutionary Australian-developed piano program that has students of all ages playing great-sounding classical, popular, blues, and accompaniment pieces from their first lessons. This program is tactile, experiential, and multi-sensory. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? We provide proprietary video, audio, and digital materials. There is no need for students to bring anything. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? As a conservatory-trained pianist, the owner was searching for a piano program that would provide students with the opportunity to play great-sounding music from their very first lessons. This approach has produced unprecedented results; students play a huge repertoire in a relatively short time. What do you love most about your job? We love teaching. That’s by far our favorite part. It’s an incredible feeling to have adult students consider their time with us the highlight of their week, to have kids run into the lessons and hug us because they’re so happy to be there, and to not want to leave after their time with us.
