A variety of independent shops and restaurants makes for a pleasant stroll down this lovely avenue. Much more interesting than the plaza shops, most of which you could find in any mall.

I like Montana Avenue in Santa Monica. Between Lincoln Blvd and 20th Street (if you go west on Montana you will hit the Santa Monica bluffs that overlook the Pacific ocean), there are many different restaurants, shops, coffee houses, etc to go too. Very laid...More

Between 6th and 17th streets in Santa Monica, Montana Avenue is a quiet and enjoyable area to shop and stroll and enjoy the area and do some shopping.

Walkable small town downtown south of San Vicente. South of Montana is tainted by the hustle and bustle of Wiltshire. Yet the closer you get to Montana the neighborhood changes and it begins to take on the flavor of Montana. Santa Monica is stratified by...More

Montana Ave is an icon in my book. You cannot be in the LA area and not go to Montana. Restaurants, cafes, boutiques, all in a beautiful surrounding. You have to walk up and down this street and enjoy Cali at it's best :)
