Our hotel was on Ocean Ave. We walked to the beach, had a couple nights of great dinners. Lots of people walking around day and night.

Depends on which part you are driving
Sep. 2021
Not much of a view driving south to Venice Beach and Marina del Rey from Santa Monica. From Santa Monica downtown going north, it is more open and the view is better.

Great area

The selection of restaurants and shops is amazing. You really don’t have to leave the area to enjoy your trip it has it all. Only thing is homelessness is a problem here.

Talk a walk!

The views of the ocean are great! A nice gentle walk above the ocean. Beware of dogs and homeless people sleep sleeping on the grass.

Pacific Heaven

Stroll along the Pacific Palisades and gaze at the open top convertible automobiles as they drive past. Or better still, drive your own car along one of the most iconic roads in the world.

Ocean View

This is a lovely place to walk. The ocean view extends to the horizon and sunsets are amazing. Just watch out for dog do on the grass. Many people walk their dogs here and some are not responsible enough to pick up after their pet.

The views are out of this world!
Jan. 2020
If you want the full California experience, Ocean Avenue is it. Beautiful colors, ocean air, spectacular views, well maintained walking paths, fabulous people watching. You can't go wrong here. So much to see and do and, best of all, it is FREE!

Santa Monica has some of the prettiest streets anywhere, and Ocean Avenue is certainly no exception.

Nice street with great sunsets
Dec. 2019
We walked and drove along the Ocean Avenue and always liked it. There is no shortage of cafes and restaurants along the street. Parking was always found. Sunsets are enjoyable after parking the car or on foot. Homeless people and their homemade shelters can be a nuisance.

It was shut down for a bike race

So nifty how they shut down the street for a bike race. Really the only address in Santa Monica. The elec scooters didn't work though, they gotta work on that
