Nice mix of high end shops in Santa Monica. Great neighborhood vibe and extremely walkable. Wildly different from Main St area of Santa Monica which is beachy and artsy; close to Venice. Room for both -- take your pick or choose both!

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
