Paris may have a fancy tower, but L.A.’s got the sea.

And that’s why Santa Monica Beach, along with a dozen of other major Los Angeles landmarks, is featured in La La Land’s bid for the 2024 Olympics.

Paris and L.A. are the only two cities remaining in contention for the games. In the latest renderings released by LA 2014, the city’s committee in the bid, Santa Monica Beach would be the venue for beach volleyball, Curbed reported.

The UCLA campus would serve as the Olympic Village, while the Forum arena in Inglewood would be used for gymnastics, and Pasadena’s Rose Bowl would be utilized for soccer. The terrain of San Dimas’ Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park would be perfect for mountain biking, and Lake Perris would be used for rowing.

The UCLA campus itself would undergo renovations before the games.

Members of the International Olympic Committee will visit L.A. this week to assess the city. They will make their choice in September. [Curbed]Cathaleen Chen
