Santa Monica Place will be designed to reflect the trend-setting, idea-creating, fashion-making appeal of Santa Monica. Here will be a nexus of great retail suited to this one-of-a-kind, world-famous city by the beach. In place of a formerly enclosed, suburban mall, a distinctive, open-air shopping magnet is being created. Santa Monica Place will maximize its beachside setting to bring together fresh ocean breezes, marquee retailers and sun-dappled walkways. Macy's will remain open during the redevelopment of the new Santa Monica Place.

It's a shopping mall, but it was a pleasant place to pass through and buy a few bits as we headed back to find our hotel. Had a decent looking foodcourt (we had already eaten at Joes Pizza's) and an interesting enough variety of shops.

Santa Monica Place is a great place to shop. The parkades have ample parking. The mall is walking distance to Santa Monica Pier and beach, and the Third Street Promenade - both great tourist attractions. This mall is anchored by Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom's with many mid- to higher-end shops in between over several levels. The foodcourt on the third level... More

Fantastic place to go shopping, plenty of lovely places upstairs to have a meal as well. Over the few days in LA we ate at a couple of the restaurants upstairs and they were both amazing. If you're at Santa Monica it's definitely worth shopping in here, along with the Third Street Promenade.

Santa Monica has the best shopping strip in LA. Large pedestrian area with all the best shops close together. So much of LA requires a car trip between shops but this area is a pleasant stroll.

Spent one day shopping in this area and I did like the place! All shops are next to each other or not too far from the other! Got my MK and Ted baker wallets here! Staffs were all very nice and friendly!

Nice outdoor shopping, more on the high end type store though. Nice clean area with great restaurants to choose from on third floor.

Lots of shops and options for everyone in the family. Love the stores outside in the open space! You can first go to Venice Beach and then do some shopping here. Then stay for dinner.

I simply love the outdoor atmosphere of this incredible shopping centre. High end stores means high prices but great selection and fabulous places to eat!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
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.
