Santa Monica Farmer’s Market
A favorite among locals since 1995, the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market never disappoints. Here you’ll find fresh local produce, farm-to-table prepared foods, and artisan goods. There’s also live music, bi-weekly cooking demonstrations, and fun activities for the kids!
For an experience unlike any other, you can’t beat dinner and some drinks at Chez Jays. Affectionately known as “the world’s most glamorous dive bar,” this restaurant and bar has been a favorite among locals, visitors, and celebrities since 1959. It was even declared a Santa Monic landmark in 2012! You’ll love the delicious steak and seafood menu almost as much as the fun and friendly atmosphere.
If a day of shopping and dining appeals to you, you’ll definitely want to plan a trip to Montana Avenue. It’s located just a short distance from the Santa Monica coastline, stretching from 7th to 17th Street. Here you’ll find over 150 shops and restaurants ranging from small, unique boutiques to high-end retail shops. It’s also home to excellent coffee shops, cafes, and bars, several salons, a spa, and a cinema.
A combination seafood market, cafe, and raw bar, Santa Monica Seafood is a must-visit spot for anyone who loves fresh, high-quality seafood. Dine in, order your meals to go, or shop the huge selection of seafood at the market and prepare your own meals at home. No matter what you decide, you won’t be disappointed!
For a one-of-a-kind Santa Monica adventure, look no further than Trapeze School New York. The school is located on the Santa Monica Pier and offers a variety of classes including trapeze, trampoline, lyra, and silks. Locals tell us once they face their fears and learn how to fly, they can’t get enough!
Spending a day at Bergamot Station is a favorite activity among local art lovers. This internationally-renowned cultural arts complex is home to 30 galleries and creative businesses. Admission is free, and since the displays rotate, there’s always something new and exciting to see.
If you enjoy a delicious cocktail in a classy setting, you’ll definitely want to pay a visit to Bar Chloe. With low lighting, chandeliers, and candles, it’s best described as the perfect combination of “chic” and “chill.” You’ll love the cozy atmosphere, rotating menu of high-end cocktails, and delicious locally-sourced meat and cheese platters.
