Picture 41 300x230 #6 WestsideDBs 365 Things to Do In Santa Monica   The PromenadeThe Santa Monica Promenade is a pedestrian friendly shopping mecca forPicture 33 150x150 #6 WestsideDBs 365 Things to Do In Santa Monica   The Promenade Santa Monican’s and tourists alike (I’d like to see the numbers, and I would guess locals are a pretty small percentage except for Farmer’s Market days).

Stroll down the three block long area from Wilshire Blvd to Broadway Ave and discover local stores and major chains, cart vendors and listen to local performers whether they are musicians, break beat artists, or performance artists.

HINT: You can park for free in a number of parking garages on 2nd & 4th for two hours (as long as its before 6pm).  You can also take the TIDE shuttle to Main Street.

Start your stroll at the North end on Wilshire perhaps at Sur La Table and pop into the Barnes and Noble for a coffee and a magazine. Picture 5 150x150 #6 WestsideDBs 365 Things to Do In Santa Monica   The Promenade

The Apple store is always fun for a little technology fix or just to check your email or play a game with the kids. Grab some nosh at any of the vendors along the way, or stop for a bite at one of the eateries along the walk.

Whatever your proclivity, you can find something to do at the Santa Monica Promenade. And you might actually see a local once and awhile – go figure!
