The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Great walk

Take a stroll down Montana Ave in Santa Monica from 7th east to 20th - it's all here. Great shops and restaurants and coffee shops and dessert places.

This is a avenue hosts a lot of interesting places to shop and dine. The biggest problem will be finding a place to park. Good luck!

Better off on third street
Aug. 2019
Once you have been to the third street promenade, this street is just not as interesting. It is probably more of a street for locals to shop. No celebrity sightings on the day we were there.

Montana has lots of local boutiques balanced with high end clothing and cosmetic stores. Lots of breakfast, lunch, and dinner spots. Bakeries and ice cream and yogurt spots. A neighborhood experience.

Quaint and quieter side of Santa Monica
Mar. 2019 • Couples
We drove along Montana Avenue after visiting the bustling beach and downtown areas and found we like the charming and calmer feel of this area best. Between about 14th St and 17th street are some lovely shops (even chains like JJill and Chico's for women's clothing) and cute restaurants. Running perpendicular to the beach, it's a straight shot with pretty homes off the side streets - all clean and well-maintained. I'd like to come back and visit more!

great shopping
Jan. 2019 • Couples
This is a long street of interesting shops so you might not want to walk it all - but then again, on a sunny day in Santa Monica why wouldn't you!
