Main Street

Beginning at the bottom of the Third Street Promenade
Main Street leads from Santa Monica to the heart of Venice

The '30s-era Santa Monica City Hall on 1685 Main Street

Cute little doggie in the front of a hair salon on Main Street
- the most interesting stretch of Main St runs between
Pico Blvd and Rose Ave
Had both manicure and pedicure in this nail spa on Main Street
- superb pampering experiment,
making the nails was like Chinese art,
they are real professionals here
- walk-ins are welcome 

Eclectic and funky Weego Home interiors shop on Main Street
Happy modern murals
One example of public art displayed along Main Street
- Edgemar Center for the Arts
and California Heritage Museum are also found here

No snow-boarding in Venice
but Big Bear nearby is already open!
Interesting chandelier on a shop window

By the early '70s, the majority of the neighbourhood's
attractions had been demolished,
and Main Street itself had become a slum.

coffeehouses, restaurants,
 beauty salons and first-rate art galleries
are found on Main St
