North of Montana

Ocean Sunset at Palisades Park

Montana Avenue, which sits at the city’s northern edge, is home to a stretch of more than 150 restaurants and retailers. Though it’s just a short walk from Downtown Santa Monica, it feels removed from the hustle and bustle of the Promenade and Pier. Late-night options may be limited, but from sunrise to sunset, a steady stream of shoppers browse the surrounding storefronts amid a relaxed crowd of A-list celebrities, out-of-towners, and parents pushing strollers, none of whom seem in a hurry to leave the wealth of juice bars, latte vendors, and outdoor cafés. On a sunny day (which is most days in Santa Monica) locals can be seen strolling the bluff or doing yoga at Palisades Park, or breaking a sweat at the Santa Monica Stairs.

The North of Montana neighborhood has recently been listed as one of the most expensive real estate markets in the country. Palm trees and beautiful California mansions line the "Dream Streets" of Georgina Ave, Alta Ave, and Marguerita Ave.
