Main Street, Santa Monica, California
Main Street Santa Monica....not your typical main Street USA. Here we have cute shops, restaurants, loads of coffee shops and numerous big name apparel shops: Patagonia and American Apparel. It's a great street to stroll down and grab a coffee or tea with your dog~and of course people watch! One of my favorite things to do! Main Street is just north of Venice, It sits in between Lincoln Blvd and the Pacific Ocean and south of the 10 freeway.
A few of my favorite places is Accents Jewlery. Amazing Sterling Silver pieces-handmade-they are amazing. i bought a beautiful ring in there that I absolutely LOVE! Also if you're with your dog you must dash into Tails of Santa Monica the local dog store....they'll give your pup a biscuit!
Like I said coffee coffee coffee-Starbucks, Urth, Peets, Coffee Bean are all on Main Street and then you have your choice of yummy pastry shops. It's a fun place to hang out, eat, shop and then maybe go to the beach after or before-the beach is only a few blocks west!!! And there is ample parking around!
