All the shops that you need - the big ones are there. Abercrombie, Victoria Secret, Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Kate Spade and many more. Great night street performances!

“great shopping...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

And people watching! mostly regular shops. IE Nike store, etc. There was, at least one unique store. Either way, different from the regular "mall" shopping and an outdoor mall is always better. Unless, of course, it's raining.

“Nice shoppingarea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Very convenient, mainly brand names, but you can find som local shops too. Busy, buzzing and great for people watching. many cafés, restaurants and bars. Only a block from the beach. A nice area to stroll around in when you want a break from the beach :-)

Good assortment of brand name and local shops. Lots, I mean lots of street entertainment to help the bored non-shoppers pass the time.

“Fun for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We visited 3rd Street Promenade for the first time in about 5 years. I forgot how great this place is. Lots of restaurants and shops. But, what's great is the art along 3rd St and the entertainment is fun to watch and listen to.

It's only a couple blocks from the beach. So, you can easily walk 3rd St, have lunch, then head to the beach and enjoy!

Parking is always a challenge. But, we found a great parking garage on 4th St between Wilshire and Arizona. It's reasonable and what's great is you can start your walk just a block away on 3rd St at Wilshire (basically where the promenade ends) and walk along 3rd St and you won't miss anything!
