“Always check for events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Promenade by itself, on Second Street may feel sparse compared to regular tourist venues, such as Claremont, or coastal towns, but having lived here through the last parts of it's heyday's, memories of those days always endears Pomona to me, and I'm sure of many others who work and are trying to bring back some of those great times.
Its casual, and no rush, If one digs down alittle, the history is just as facinating as any other well known town. Such as "The Vault", now a building waiting for a rebirth, built in the 1800's, one can find photos of it when 2nd st. was still a dusty earthen road.
There are car shows, musical entertainment, various foods, and wonderful eclectic pesonalities during various events.
Wonderful building murals, easy people watching at outdoor dining venues are Very relaxing and the center to other attractions such as antique shops, theater, clubs, restaurants, museums, parks, banking, city hall, one of the finest libraries in the valley if not the best, and many more attractions, All within walking distance!! Take the Amtrak, or Bus to and from, parking is Free for the first 3 Hours, other areas are free, and Security is friendly and helpful.
Check dates and times online or call city hall, some button pushing and they're alway wiling to help. See Ya there!

“Coming on up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I was in Pomona about 2 years ago and visited the Antique Row. That's really all there was and now there's a bit of EVERYTHING here. They've really fixed the place up, the shops are little treasure troves and the variety is now visible. They now have a great sushi bar, Joey's BBQ, This little Mexican food bakery and restaurant that's finger licking good, and 2nd Street Bistro which has an delicious shrimp caesar salad. The shops are antique, vintagy, but there's also shoes, clothes and lingerie boutique's, a cupcake store, art galleries, The Glass house, hair salons, a book store and the night life here is great! Clubs and bars line up almost an entire block. If you haven't visited, it's definitely a place to stop by and enjoy!

“They have really spruced up this area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My only complaint is that the shops close very early, other than that, it was quaint with many unique and diverse shops, from antiques to art. I was pleasantly surprised. It rivals some of the more pricier downtown village shopping areas nearby, like Claremont and Glendora.

Many good events, plenty of stage seating for bands/shows. Doesn't get as crowded as other near by town events. great antiques stores with historic backgrounds, some nice restaurants (joeys BBQ, french cuisine, american). Many many historic buildings worth seeing and /or photographing.
