Santa Monica’s famous Third Street Promenade is a shop-a-holic’s dream. Located less than a block from the beach and lined with luscious palm trees and other beautiful greenery, the promenade is an ideal tourist destination and heavily regarded as the best shopping center in all of Los Angeles’ Westside area.
Some of the promenade’s more well-known department stores and shops include Forever 21, Gap, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, American Eagle, Guess?, Apple, Quiksilver and several others.
More than just a shopping center, Third Street Promenade is filled with plenty of family-friendly fun, entertainment and dining. There are over 20 movie theater screens throughout the three-block stretch, along with a variety of restaurants and a slew of street performers, including jugglers, break dancers, musicians and fortune tellers.
