Beautiful outdoor mall that leads right into third street promenade. 90min free parking provided but there's also plenty of pubic parking around the area that provides the same.

I love Santa Monica Place! It has such a range of stores from affordable to high end. There are yummy restaurants throughout. Plus it's beautiful to look out and pretty close to the 3rd street promenade.

Go on Friday or Saturday evening when many artists are showing
their expertise on the street. You are going to have fun an at the same time you can have dinner in one of the many Restaurants and Coffee Shops.

Santa Monica Place received a much needed renovation and has made it a much more comfortable and desirable destination. You'll be sure to find all of the major retailers you're seeking.

A beautiful open mall. The ocean view from the food court is amazing! Best in luxury stores, will save you a ride to Rodeo Drive.

Incredible one year old shopping mall with rooftop deck for dining, tons of shops, right next to the 3rd Street promenade with street performers, movie theaters, restaurants, bars, and some of the best shopping in LA.

SM Place is a great place to go if you like the trendiest of stores. They have Bloomies, Nordstrom, Burberry, Joe's, Boss, Louis Vuitton etc. The food court at the top hits all the popular notes and cuisines and best of all, there is a little gem called "True Food" that has some of the best organic and natural steaks, chicken and some seafood and veggie dishes around with GREAT juice bar as well! This restaurant alone is worth the trip - but be prepared to wait for a seat on nights and weekends.

A great place to shop and grab a bite to eat with decent parking too!

Just a moment away from Third a Street Promenade, the beach, and Santa Monica Pier.

Parking is convenient, lots of fancy stores, and if you're complaining about how there's too many designer stores... literally, just walk across the street, and you'll find Forever21, H&M, American Eagle Outfitters, and whatnot. So Santa Monica Place appeals to all crowds! Most of the designer stores are pretty small anyway and don't have too much selection, but Nordstrom's and Bloomingdale's offers a lot. Those are my main go-to stores if I'm here.

The restaurants in Santa Monica Place are all on the pricey side, and nothing stands out too much. I suggest going to Blue Stove located inside Nordstrom's.

Overall, the mall is clean and open, and its a nice place for a stroll, with a scenic view of all the luxury items that it has to offer.

A modern and luxurious mall opens up to an ocean view and the pedestrian only third street promenade.

Shoppers dream. Check out Hydrate boutique at 219 Arizona if you prefer california lifestyle designers instead of the typical department store shopping.

Santa Monica Place looks really nice as an outdoor mall, but the shops that they have here are really expensive. They have Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, etc. I would rather shop at 3rd Street Promenade, which has more affordable stores like Forever 21, H&M, etc. The one store that Santa Monica Place has that I like is Love Culture. Overall, I really like how the mall looks, but I don't think the shops here are affordable for a student. It's unfortunate because a lot of students from surrounding schools, such as UCLA, go here very often. This is a good place to take pictures, but that's pretty much it.

The shopaholic in me is happy. Plenty of places to shop, dine, and have fun. Lots of late night happy hour spots and gorgeous views. What more could a girl ask for?

Parking is expensive so I park at the 3rd St. Promenade lots and walk over. However there's a lot of check out and as far as "malls" go this one is lovely and highly recommended. It makes my time in LA worthwhile.

Skip the food court. Just don't go in. There are so many dining options in and around this place and a nice patio with a great view. Grab some coffee and sit out there or find a place to dine that's actually decent.

A friend and I have visited several times just to sit on the patio or walk around. I used to come here before it was transformed. I like the new look better.

Many, many different food options ranging from fast casual to fine dining. Sonoma Wine Garden offers a private patio dining, but hey, just skip that and order a piccolo bottle or is it a quarter bottle from the mediterranean place in the food court. You can enjoy that in the "al fresco" type eating area, along with heat lamp personal booths! Acutally, I'd just bring a bottle of wine myself since they serve wine at the food court!
