Summer is here and there’s no better way to enjoy what makes Santa Barbara the amazing town that it is than heading down to the Santa Barbara Waterfront. With the historic Stearns Wharf to the bustling harbor, and all the beaches and paths in between, this is a must-visit whether you are visiting Santa Barbara or simply enjoying your hometown.
Explore Stearns Wharf’s world-class restaurants, gift and apparel shops; enjoy offerings of local wineries while having your fortune told, or rent some fishing gear and try your luck. Stop by Ty Warner Sea Center’s touch tanks and interactive displays; or simply take in the breath-taking views of the Santa Barbara American Riviera.
Santa Barbara Harbor offers fresh fish, lobster or crab from the morning’s catch; seafaring buffs should check out the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum where miniature models and lively documentaries bring local lore to life; sign up for a day of fishing, kayaking, or treat that someone special to a romantic sunset cruise; and you can always just relax on sun-drenched beaches.
