Beautiful scenery but felt almost unsafe ! Too many homeless folks and unsavory characters walking around and loitering around the public bathrooms !

We were looking for someplace to replace & get a drink and found a nice 3rd floor wine bar, with a Happy Hour. Food & drinks were not tourist pricing which was nice.

This is an excellent place where you can enjoy life without a car in LA. The only improvement I suggest is to expand the pedestrian area. Good selection of different style of restaurants. Friendly people all around.

Ample eateries, great shops and really pedestrian friendly. The Patagonia shop is a little hidden but was the main purpose for our visit and was well worth it. Parking opposite the pier was really reasonable for a short stay.

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.

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

My visit was for about 1,5 hours. Just walked up on on side and down the other. Only window shopping and listening/looking at performing artists.
