Montana Avenue is a primarily residential tree-lined street that stretches from Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, California to the West L.A. Veterans Administration at Bringham Avenue in the Brentwood district of Los Angeles. A non-contiguous segment of Montana Avenue then continues east of the Veterans Administration in the Brentwood Glen neighborhood to Veteran Avenue at UCLA when it becomes Gayley Avenue. Gayley Avenue later becomes Midvale Avenue at its intersection with Wilshire Boulevard.

The intersection of Montana and Barrington is one of the busiest in the area, due to its proximity to the San Diego Freeway and Sunset Boulevard interchange. Montana Avenue is most famous for its upscale and chic shopping and dining portion from 7th to 17th Streets in Santa Monica;[1] the western portion is served by Santa Monica Transit line 18, and the section by UCLA is served by LACMTA line 602.
