“Lovely Place to Stroll”
Review of Ocean Avenue

Ocean Avenue

Reviewed November 2, 2013

A lovely place to stroll in the late afternoon on a hot summers day. During our short stay in Santa Monica it became our routine each day to stroll along the beach side of Ocean Avenue admiring the beautifully kept gardens & enjoying the cooling ocean breeze. We would then cross the road & call into one of the many bars for happy hour.

Vibrant and great restaurants/bars where you can enjoy cocktails and people watch. Happy hours are a must!

A nice walk from Cafe Crepe, down Broadway to Ocean Ave
for a great view of the ocean, the beach, and the Pier.

I really fell in love with this place, surrounded by the beach on one side and shops and resturants on the other with such a laid back atmosphere. We loved the pier and the views from the Ferris wheel were simply stunning. I would 100% recommend a visit here, we were here with our teenage daughter and she loved it also but we were all very sad to leave.

lovely to walk down at sunset and enjoy the energy of the place. We are sure we spotted a few celebs if not- they will be in a few years' time! Loved the pier, took a few rides and felt young again!
