Nice mix of high end shops in Santa Monica. Great neighborhood vibe and extremely walkable. Wildly different from Main St area of Santa Monica which is beachy and artsy; close to Venice. Room for both -- take your pick or choose both!

Drove here by accident, lost but in doing so was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and characer - so different to all the things I don't like about L.A. - very nuch a community and living type environment.
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
