Fun Dining, Shops, and Shows Await at Third Street Promenade

July 02, 2018

Dive into the buzzing scene of Downtown Santa Monica with an afternoon at the Third Street Promenade. A lively mix of shops, eateries, and street performers, the Promenade always has something exciting going on just waiting for you—whether you’re a foodie, shopaholic, or art-enthusiast. And the twice-weekly Farmers Market is a fun outing to get your hands on fresh, local produce, speak with local farmers and agriculturalists, and check out the many art vendors lined up. You can pop into one of the many eateries to quench your thirst with a refreshing cocktail or go straight for the shops to find a new wardrobe. No matter how you like to spend your free time, you’ll love spending an LA day at this open-air, car-free stretch of shops, restaurants, and shows.
