First time to California; I was at Santa Monica Pier and thought I check out this place. It was worth the walk...a variety of shops and restaurants not over priced in my opinion. Like any place the later you go the busier it is.

This is a great shopping parade, with great shops and eateries. Beautiful lilac trees in full bloom line the street. The only thing that spoilt it was the large number of homeless people camped out on every chair and on every corner. Most of them...More

Good looking, clean, plenty of shops (no outlets here, so just don't plan to bargain there). Some street performers, in general, a good place and environment for walking & shopping. And you smokers, it is not allowed!!

We loved Third Street! Wish we had longer to be there. Lots of great flagship stores with items not available over places. Worth the visit. Not a lot of sit down restaurants available.

Third Street Promenade has tons of great shopping and food! There is also plenty of public parking in close walking distance and at a reasonable price.

Lovely shopping & dining area. Low to high end dining. Family-friendly. Street entertainers & night time ambiance enhance the experience. Businesses take care to keep the area clean. Also a good spot for a quiet early morning breakfast or cup of coffee.
