The Wharf’s Walk

Stearn’s Wharf Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara Pier

Stern’s Wharf is one of Santa Barbara’s hot spots and you’ll find it just over a mile from Kimpton Canary. Consider it a catch all for amazing local dining, sightseeing, shopping and exploring. It’s the longest deep water wharf between San Francisco and Los Angeles and steeped in history which is why the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center also calls the Wharf home.
