Always great to walk on Third. Nice stores, always someone singing or performing. Very nice restaurants nearby such as True Food, Uovo and Hiho.

We really enjoyed walking around the Promenade looking through the shops, sampling the food and watching the people. A must when spending time in Santa Monica.

All the shopping you could ever wish for. All the known brands and a good selection of both cheap and more expensive stuff.

Had excellent parking options. Some had the first 90 minutes free. Enjoyed the high energy of all the shoppers. Had street entertainment but these were not “want-a-bes” but could never bes. Must do in LA.

So many lovely shops all within walking distance. Parking in public car park on 2nd street is free first 90 mins then only $1.25 an hour after that. Great place to park and so handy leaves you right out at 3rd street promenade.

What a beautiful place to walk! Located a couple of blocks from the beach, it's very worth walking to see the shops, artists and musicians lined up on the street and plenty of restaurants of all price ranges. I can't wait to go back soon...More

A couple blocks off the beach and you stumble on a beautiful promenade with lots of great shops, an outdoor mall and sweet resturants. Loved walking there at night with the lights and street preformers. An abumdance of resturants to choose from as well!

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
