Well average

Our experience was ok, not really much to do other than walk around, this beach is a lot better than Venice beach, the Pear was also a disappointment.

Even better than last year, shame Kitson went, but there are still lots of good shops. the restaurants are ok I think outside of SM place there are much better ones, but it's still a nice space to shop in a relaxing area and 2 minutes from the beach of course

This is an excellent place to shop even though there are some dingy alleys you have to walk through at times. Even on a Sunday evening it was very crowded so parking was an issue.

One of my new favourite places to visit! The whole area is so clean and bright and there is a vast amount of shops to browse around. Attentive customer service in every shop I visited! Recommended.

Nice shopping mall although the primary reason for the visit was hunger so we headed to the food mall on the roof, lots of choice and I opted for the Mongolian noodle bar to create your own dish. Spicy tasty and different. Had a brief look round the shops but didn't have time for a real look but will do... More

All the shops stretching right down the third street promenade you would want but so much more relaxed than a mall and getting fresh air and friendly enthusiastic service made the shopping experience that much nicer

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
