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.
