Capturing the Rhythm of
Downtown Santa Monica

From out of town? That's OK.
Call Santa Monica home sweet home? No problem.
This blog is the right place for you.

We here at Santa Monica Centric are your downtown loyalists. We are all about going AWOL—always west of Lincoln (Boulevard)—to help unearth the hidden gems and keep you up to date with all that is exciting and worthwhile. Trust us. AWOL is the way to be as Downtown Santa Monica is a vibrant world-class destination with 100,001 things to do.

We’ve got shopping, dining and entertainment. We have the world-famous Third Street Promenade. There are buskers on the streets and high-tech businesses in our buildings. Walk out to the pier, ride the Ferris wheel, breathe in the Pacific Ocean air, then look back at the Santa Monica Mountains because we have everything. Even Forbes thought so when they voted DTSM one of the best downtown’s in America. (Why aren’t you here now?)
