THE BEST SPOTS TO SHOP IN SANTA MONICA

Santa Monica is known for its pedestrian-friendly streets and stunning coastal views, making it one of SoCal's favorite places to shop. Here's our breakdown of the best shopping districts to check out this Spring:

Main Street

Head to the southern tip of Santa Monica for an eclectic shopping extravaganza (hello thrifters!). Bordering Venice, Main Street has all the funk and excitement of a treasure hunt – with custom surfboards, vintage jean jackets, and California memorabilia all on the list.

Third Street Promenade

The Third Street Promenade is easily the most famous shopping area in town. You'll have your pic of dozens of stores ranging from department stores like Nordstrom, and to mom-and-pop kiosks. Also check REI's Santa Monica location for classes in rock climbing, mountain biking- even travel prep.

You can catch a street performer between stores and enjoy the fresh California air.

Montana Avenue

Take a stroll down this quaint Westside favorite and check out Splendid, Clare V, Benefit Cosmetics, Planet Blue, and more. Easy to navigate and expertly curated, this street has it all. Need a break? Stop into one of the many charming restaurants or coffee shops to refuel.

Now, grab your sunnies and shopping bag (‘cause the vibe is eco-conscious in Santa Monica), and head out  to the shops this season!
