“The Strand” pathway connects Santa Monica to colourful Venice Beach and the upmarket dwellings of Pacific Palisades. It’s a popular spot for working out, whether you want to walk, cycle, jog or rollerblade.

Third Street Promenade is the commercial heart of Santa Monica with its pedestrian-only strip lined with fashion retailers, cafes and pop-up farmers markets. If you’re looking for designer goods, head to Montana Avenue, considered a more relaxed version of Rodeo Drive.
