The Third Street Promenade is only two blocks from the beach so you can easily enjoy shopping and lying on the beach all in one afternoon. On the Promenade, you can have some family fun while taking in a movie at one of the cinemas or enjoy watching some of the street performers who call the Promenade their office! The Promenade also offers you the chance to do some serious shopping. Stores here sell everything from clothing for the whole family to jewelry, shoes, accessories, electronics, books and toys. You can buy simple knick-knacks like souvenir mugs and key chains or you can even decorate your home with outstanding fine art from a gallery.
