By day, shopping; by night, spontaneous performances.
By day and by night.
Inside Santa Monica is The Third Street Promenade, one of the most well-known commercial streets in the area between Wilshire Boulevard and Broadway. This street experienced a long period of decline until the decision was made several years ago to completely redesign it. Its three blocks have now become one of the busiest and liveliest places in Los Angeles, especially at weekends and in the summer. Both sides of the street are packed with cafeteria and restaurant terraces, as well as luxury shops. There is also space for second-hand clothes and record shops, where you can find authentic relics from years gone by. As night falls, The Third Street Promenade is populated by artists, jugglers and comedians arriving at music, dance and magic shows, as well as street vendors offering passers-by all kinds of products.
