      For more than a century, this colorful pier has provided seaside recreation and entertainment to locals and tourists. There is a ferris wheel and other amusement park rides, an arcade, and interesting shops and restaurants, as well as concerts and other entertainment. There's even a branch of the Trapeze School of New York. And of course you can fish off the pier or swim at the fine beach next to it.

      If you go:
      The pier is a short walk from Third Street Promenade, the city's hub of entertainment, shopping and dining. You'll see a sign indicating that the Pier is the official endpoint of Route 66. Don't miss the little Route 66 memorabilia shop.
