Palm tree lined upscale out door mall. Safe and pleasant walk with many retail/restaurant options in clean environment. Close to the peer, Venice beach and Santa Monica beach.

There is such a variety of shops and dining options. Typically the service in the various shops was good the prices were quite expensive but not surprising for the area. The outdoor set up is beautiful on a sunny day.

Wish we had have found this place sooner. A great shopping mall with lots of food options. Very clean and lots of people wandering through on the summer evening.

Another place to visit while in Santa Monica. This is a kind of "open" shopping mall, small to medium size. Nothing in particular to detail, but the top floor is a very nice food court, especially if you go at sunset. No more to add.

We loved this shopping mall! Tons of great stores and restaurants, clean and kept up very well. There were great views from the top level, and the kids loved playing in the play area in the food court.

Really loved the look of this mall. This shopping area has mainly high end stores like Bloomingdales and designer boutiques so if you are on a budget you will be hard pressed to find cheap prices here. Nevertheless I found it to be an enjoyable...More

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
