Situated just a block away from the Santa Monica Pier, the Third Street Promenade promises a quintessential LA day out by the sea. We suggest starting your day with a workout at Burn Fitness followed by a delicious sushi lunch at Sugarfish. Then, make your way to Santa Monica Place for a luxe shopping spree at stores like Bloomingdale’s, Barneys, Nordstrom, and more.
If you’re looking for a more laid-back day out, head to the bustling Abbot Kinney Boulevard and sweat it out with a spin/yoga hybrid class at YAS Fitness and refuel with a juice or a healthy lunch at Kreation Juice. Next up, shop for new sunglasses at Warby Parker, pick up skincare goodies at Caudalie, and find cool style pieces at Satine. End the day with a delicious meal at Salt Air or Gjelina.
3. Antioch Street and Sunset Boulevard, Pacific Palisades
Clear your schedule and make the drive to the Pacific Palisades for a decadent day that starts with a blow out at Drybar. Then, pop on over to Antioch Street to shop for fine jewelry at Jaimie Geller and take your time exploring Elyse Walker’s massive designer haven that commands nearly the entire block. All that shopping will work up an appetite, so treat yourself to dinner at Wolfgang Puck.
A day in Downtown LA’s pedestrian-friendly South Broadway requires a stop at Moon Juice for some fuel. Afterward, shop your heart out at Acne Studios, OAK NYC, Tanner Goods, and Aesop. Once hunger strikes again, stop by Umami Burger or head up to the Ace Hotel’s rooftop lounge to enjoy food and drinks with a view.
