I could find virtually anything I needed here! I love Sephora, Desigual, Old Navy, just tons. And good food.
The shops and atmosphere are very nice. On the weekend there were street actors singing, acting, or selling crafts which was charming.
Unfortunately the homeless are a sad part of this area. They are present at all times of day and all the places we walked. It was sad and disturbing - I'm not sure if there is any help for them.
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.
Why shop anywhere else in LA, everything is here, absolutely everything. Fantastic pedestrian only street full of buskers and fabulous shops
