Description: Santa Monica Place will be designed to reflect the trend-setting...
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.

The Place is immaculate and very well designed since it was remodeled about a few years ago. The food court has a good selection of Sbarro's, Japanese food, Mexican, and Johnny Rocket's. The only downside is that most of the stores are targeted at customers that are willing to spend a lot. However, it's a nice mall to walk through... More

Its a fun short walk full of restaurants and shops.. Some people dancing or singing in the streets. There are some dinosaur sculptures, the funny thing is that they have their bodys made of tree leaves cut down to look like them.

We've been here many times over the last 15 years and it of course has majorly transformed now. Tiffany, Kitson, Swarovski, Hugo Boss all have stores here (among many others). It has a couple of levels and includes places to eat. It's open air and has a space on the roof where you can sit and relax in between shopping.... More

Unfortunately, our camera was stolen while we were shopping here. Completely unexpected based not the clientele and caliber of stores. Lesson learned: thieves are everywhere. Watch your stuff

An open air shopping mall in Santa Monica. Seems recently constructed. Looks new and modern. Nice architecture as well.

Coming from Phoenix, it was great to enjoy an outdoor mall without dying from heat exhaustion. Great mix of stores, and plenty of parking. Walked from the mall to the beach. But very touristy.

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

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.
