The Promenade has been completely taken over by chain stores. Nothing interesting to see or do anymore.

We were there the day before Easter. It was extremely busy. Tons of sightseers, families, kids and pets. There are businesses there, but nothing I can’t find at my local mall. If you’ve never been, it’s worth a trip, but otherwise don’t bother.

It’s a great area to do some unique shopping while in Santa Monica. It’s one of the things not all tourists hear about, so it still feels somewhat of a true Angelean option. It’s a great area to walk through and window shop, even if you’re not looking to buy anything specific.

If you think that only teen girls like to shop, you would be wrong. My two teen sons loved all of the clothing and shoe stores on the street.

We stumbled upon this area after deciding we weren’t spending the day at the pier. We found a ramp that had free parking for 90-minutes then was reasonable charges after that. We found the area clean safe and delightful. It had a wonderful collection of shops - both national chains and unique stores. It also had a lot of places to stop and eat from snack restaurants, to linen tablecloth sit downs, to burger places. The street performers were a treat to watch as well.
