End 2017 on a refreshing note by participating in the City of Santa Monica’s 1st Annual Polar Bear Swim. On Saturday, December 30, come to the historic Annenberg Community Beach House where you can take a dip or buoy swim in the cold Pacific, then warm up in the heated Beach House pool.

Don’t forget your swimsuits and towels! The pool is heated. Registration is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and adults 60+, and $4 for youth 1-17. Registration is now open.
