Lots of restaurants and stores. It is a great place just to stroll and people watch, but great place to hang and get a meal as well.

Excellent place to shop. Cars cannot drive down street so makes it easy to cross street whenever for shops. Clean area. Bathrooms located in a few of parking garages. At night the trees are lit up with lights.

A fun pedestrian street with pricy shops... a big part of Santa Monica life but not especially thrilling for the tourist.

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
