The Promenade has a little bit of everything, from high-end to economic stores. I love Desiduals, clothes that are based on Cirque du Soliel designs, but it's a very expensive place to shop. I find myself at Forever 21 a lot and can pick up some really good bargains there. There are good street musicians worth stopping to listen to, and there are lovely little bistros in the center of the street where you can relax with a glass of wine and light snacks before hitting the stores again. There are also several theatres on the Promenade that show 1st-run movies. So much to do, so little time.

I had a wonderful vacation in California that consisted of much shopping and dining. The third street promenade is long and filled with many stores as well as entertainment as you walk.

Lots of restaurants & shops but closed pretty early for a very busy Labor Day weekend...restaurants were all buttoned up before 11PM.

Every store you can imagine is along this stretch! Great for shopping or stopping for a bite to eat and people watching!
