Every city/town should have a community spot like this. Great shops, wonderful restaurants and entertainment everywhere. We happened upon their movie night on the street - great to see all the families enjoying the evening. No visit to Santa Monica is complete without a visit to this area.

Fun place to walk around. Lots to choose from here. Tons of restaurants, street performers, shops. Can get a little overwhelming and crowded at times.

I always enjoy walking up and down the Promenade. We find parking that was free for the first 90 minutes. That is always great.

We love to visit 3rd Street Promenade everytime we visit the US. We like watching all the talented people performing everyday. Lots of nice food and shopping is great. I also like the magazine stand in the middle.
