Santa Monica's Main Street has a friendly neighborhood vibe that's less exclusive than that of Montana Avenue and less frenetic than that of Third Street Promenade. For the modern parent and the fan of handmade artisan goods, Main Street can be one of the most pleasant shopping districts on the Westside. Dotted with casual restaurants and bars, the stretch from Bicknell to Rose avenues is a pedestrian-friendly zone punctuated by the trend-setting Obsolete, the curiosity cabinet that is Jadis and new arrivals such as Kellygreen Home. You can find street parking, though be prepared for zealous enforcement.
