Santa Monica on Christmas Day

Hoping for a bit of advice on this one...

We land in LA on Christmas morning at 7.30am (were supposed to land at 4.30pm, but have had a schedule change)

After checking in to our hotel in West Hollywood, we thought that some jetlag curing sea air might be in order!

Can we expect much to be happening around Santa Monica on Christmas day? What can we expect the weather to be like?

We dont have any set plans for the day until dinner reservations at 8pm. I expect by the time we get through customs, get to the hotel, freshen up, then get down there it may be as late as midday.

Thanks for your advice in advance,

Jeffyg

just to confirm, the restuarant we are going to is back near the hotel in west hollywood at 8pm... the idea was just to spend the afternoon around Santa Monica.

Is it likely any shops will be open?

Will wait and see what the experts say!

Thanks!

Many of the stores on the Promenade will be open, and all the movie theaters, as well as many restaurants and bars (all over Santa Monica). It's a great place to spend Christmas Day, lots of people find walking around the cliffs over the beach and the Pier and the Promenade a great way to spend the day.
