What time of year? I assume soon?

I would spend Saturday night walking, shopping and eating along the 3rd street promenade. Then hit the beach all day Sunday.

Don't know what you enjoy...

Good food? Casual but hip bar? People watching? Shopping?

Will you have a car? What area of Santa Monica?

Rent a bike or rollerblades and hit the boardwalk - you can easily go to Venice and if you want to spend the day at the beach - go all the way down to Playa del Rey or Manhatten Beach,

Pamper yourself at Burke Williams Salon, excellant massages and use of steam rooms, sauna, quiet room, and more.

Well I am finally here! Started out great walking up & down Main Street doing some light shopping. Gonna jump on the Wave and go to the 3rd Street Promenade and then the Santa Monica Pier Tonight.

Montana Avenue is where the fashionable boutiques are and there are a number of coffee shops (i.e. Starbucks, Petes, Diedrich) where you can grab an outdoor table and watch the fashion show walk past you while you are sitting.......7th and Montana is pretty close to ground zero.
