“A nice walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

One side has running / bike path closer to beach. The other side runs from residential to hotels to restaurants. Even coming from a big city, the number of homeless folks was noticeable.

“Lovely Place to Stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
