In Santa Barbara, All Roads Lead To State Street
State Street is one of those amazing city arteries that in one street, captures every color, flavor and nuance of the town. And in seductive Santa Barbara, that's saying a lot. Just one block from the Canary, State Street stretches from the north end of town all the way to the oceanfront's Stearns Wharf.
Put on your walking shoes (here that could be anything from Italian loafers to Birkenstocks) and get ready to discover amazing vintage boutiques, locally designed beachwear for your California girl (or boy) look, or duck into a shady patio for a magnifico margarita.
You can even catch a movie or see a concert in historic theaters. And you won't even need a ticket for one of State Street's best shows: just slow down to Santa Barbara speed, find a sunny bench, and take in the people-watching. It's free and fabulous.
