  • This road let’s Santa Barbara down, closed shops, shops full of cheap tat and a shabby dirty feel about it however there are some nice shops and cafes etc in amongst it all.  more »
  • Spain-like streets match the climate and atmosphere perfect. If the United States get around on foot, unusual small town stroll on foot cocktails!

  • The main drag of Santa Barbara [other than the beach]. Lots of shopping, food and eye candy. Loved the pianos on the corners where people just randomly sit down and play.  more »
