Ocean Front Walk (just south of Santa Monica Pier)
Santa Monica, CA 90405
International Chess Park
Santa Monica’s outdoor chess facility is Washington Square Park west — only at the beach with an ocean breeze. And within steps of Hot Dog Stick. Geek heaven. Lots of chessboard-inlayed tables mean you can always get your game on here. Plus, there’s generally a lot to feast your eyes on while waiting for your rival to decide on his or her next move. Don’t forget your sunblock.

    I was there few days ago, very nice place to play, however is quite impossible to find an opponent as everyone plays always with the same one for hours.

    Thank you for bringing up this topic. I like how you present and argue all the facts in addition to
    your overall writing style. Sometimes, there’s a shortage of time to
    study long pieces, but yours is short and concise, I spent just
    a couple of minutes to read the whole article.
    It is vital since no one has sufficient time to read.
