“Perfect for an afternoon out!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We enjoyed sometime on the Promenade on a hot afternoon. Bustling with action, stopped to enjoy some young singing talents and took in a movie. Window shopped a few great shops and plan to go back without the kids in tow ;).

“A great place to people watch”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

People watching, dining, shopping and entertainment all in one place. The city of Santa Monica does a fantastic job of keeping the Promenade clean so it's always a pleasure to walk around and window shop.

“A Great Slice of Southern California”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

This is a 3 block long road that is now only a pedestrian walkway. A great place to people watch. There are expensive shops and restaurants plus numerous movie theaters on both sides of the walkway. Besides the pedestrians there are street musicians and performers plus people selling jewelery and other items. This area is only three blocks from Santa Monica Beach and Pier and only three miles from Venice Beach. There is free parking around the area in lots plus street metered parking.
