Why Choose Santa Monica For Your Next Vacation
Santa Monica is a very beautiful city. There are fascinating shops and an unusual number of movie theaters along this walkway that seems to attract people from all walks of life – young and old, wealthy on down to the homeless.
On weekends there is always an assortment of street musicians and entertainers willing to do just about anything to get a tip and a warm round of applause. So, to enjoy this beautiful place you can book hotels in advance at https://www.surestaysantamonica.com/.
Many of the city's restaurants are located in the Third Street downtown area, although many others are spread about in various parts of the city. Our dinner choice, Thai Dishes, actually is about 20 blocks off the beach in the mid-city area and turned out to be a surprisingly affordable spot to enjoy a wide selection of expertly prepared Thai entrees. It's not formal, but it's good.
If you're looking for trendy – oh, there's that word again – the place in Santa Monica to look is Montana Avenue. There is a 10-block section of this street that has become the center of the universe for celebrity-watchers because this is where we are told the famous like to come out and be semi-real people.
The businesses along here are kind of an eclectic collection of specialty stores and quiet little sidewalk cafes and more nail salons per square mile than anyplace west of New York City.
