City GuideSanta Monica
Home to 90,000 residents & renowned for its laid-back beachy atmosphere.

So, let’s get you up to speed on SaMo’s various neighborhoods and what they have to offer. Keep in mind that the closer you get to the beach, the more money you’ll pay in rent.

Having trouble with Craigslist Santa Monica? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

North of Montana

Oh, heck, be trendy and call it NoMa. Bordered on the east by the city of Brentwood, with Ocean Avenue on the west, and San Vicente to the north, the North of Montana area is a fantastic area. If you want to apartment hunt in the area, the zip code is 90402.

North of Wilshire

That swath of real estate that sits north of Wilshire but south of Montana is known as North of Wilshire. You may also hear it referred to by locals as Wilmot. Confused yet? Mainly a residential area. The area is laid out on a grid with the streets numbered until you get to the College Streets sub-hood where, you guessed it, the streets have names such as Princeton, Stanford and Yale. North of Wilshire features tons of condos – around 3,000 units. North of Wilshire is a nice walk to the 3rd Street Promenade. This ‘hood’s zip is 90403.

Mid-City

A freeway runs through it. That’s how you’ll know you’re in the Mid-City or Midtown neighborhood – the Santa Monica Freeway wends its way through the area on its way to meet up with Highway 1, at the coast. Remember College Streets? They represent the eastern border between North of Wilshire and Mid-City. This is an area where commercial and industrial meet residential, so there’s no shortage of stuff to do. Loads of shopping, tons of restaurants and lots of neighbors – over 17,000 of Santa Monica’s residents live in Mid-City. Zip codes here overlap with other neighborhoods: 90401, 90403 and 90404.

Pico

It runs through this neighborhood too. The Santa Monica Freeway lies smack dab in the middle of the Pico neighborhood, so stop the car and rent a place here if you’re a commuter. If mnemonics are your thing, think “never eat soggy waffles” while I give you the area’s boundaries: Colorado Ave., Centinela Ave., Pico Blvd., and Lincoln Blvd. Look in zip 90404 which is shared with Mid-City so you may have to do some additional hunting to pick out the Pico listings.

Ocean Park

Dude, immerse yourself in the funky, beachy vibe and grab yourself an off the richter crib in Ocean Park. Dewey St. marks the dividing line between Ocean Park and Venice to the south; it’s separated from Sunset Park to the east by Lincoln Blvd. and Pico defines its northern border with Mid-City. Two things to consider if you plan on moving to Ocean Park: the traffic is pretty bad and most of the parking for residents is on-street. Overall, though, Ocean Park is a hip, fun neighborhood. Zip: 90405

Sunset Park

Although you’ll find the occasional modern building in the Sunset Park neighborhood, most of the homes were built in the 1940s when Douglas Aircraft populated the place with 40,000 employees. Sunset Park lies south of Pico Blvd. and north of Dewey, with Lincoln defining its western border and Centinella its eastern. It features tree-lined streets, many with views of the city or greenbelt. You’ll find most of the condos, apartments and townhouses on the areas eastern edge. Use the 90405 zip code when searching for a place in Sunset Park but be careful, because this zip also includes areas west of Lincoln, which is in the Ocean Park neighborhood.

Best of luck finding your Santa Monica apartment, from the looks of it it’d be pretty hard to go wrong.
