“Nice walk in the evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Third Street offers the typical California shops and restaurants in a pedestrian friendly setting over several blocks of Santa Monica. It's a nice place for a stroll and some of the street entertainers are good but there's nothing special about it.

Lots of great shops. Lively atmosphere with buskers etc. Good eateries and variety of quality shops. New plaza area was interesting. Ate at lovely Japanese restaurant called Kazumo.
