A Stretch of Main Street

3rd Street Promenade. Abbott Kinney Boulevard. Montana Avenue.

Those instantly come to mind when I think of fun streets in Santa Monica.

We recently discovered a fourth.

A stretch of Main that has a very distinct personality and is definitely worth a visit.

Start at Tao Healing Arts.

Go for the Shiatsu massage and ask for Tatiana.

Stroll into Vital Hemp to try on a few comfortable garments and then head to the corner for lunch at Euphoria Loves Rawvolution.

Meals are light, delicious and filling.

Place is casual and comfy.

Just across the street is the Santa Monica Community Garden.

Walk through and see what's growing.

Apparently a good place for a nap ranks high for this gardener.

Fresh peas and whimsy offered here.

Colorful flowers and stepping stones transform this piece of land.

Further down the road is a charming library.

Consider waiting for the lines to die down at Urth Caffe (they never do). There is valet parking out front and a constant stream of customers.

Meander the side streets instead.

The architecture and courtyards are charming.

Oh, one last stop, Bike Attack, fun stuff.
