While in Santa Monica for 6 nights we visited 2 times. Easy walk from hotel. Great place to shop and many places to eat at. Best thing is the entertainment along the promenade. Grab a drink and watch some interesting folks. Worth the trip.

The west beach at Santa Barbara was a stunning sight with hardly anyone there. Lovely and peaceful but the sea was a bit chilly

It has everything. From burritos to expensive jewel's , even cars. In practice it is an open mall across the blocks or the 3rd street close to the beach.

Third Street Promenade is a lovely shopping area with a variety of stores. If one is not in the shopping mood it is a great area to stroll along the street with areas to sit and relax, and for children to play.

Very modern shopping area with lots of the normal shops and restaurants along the street with a large Mall Only downside again was the plethora of homeless people about the place

First time in the city of Santa Monica. This place is fun. Great for going on dates or even a casual solo walk. Entertainment left and right. Pretty cool if you've never been.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
