Add to that the region’s wineries, dining, shopping and exciting outdoor activities and you have a perfect Californian getaway. The hub of activity in Santa Barbara is State Street, which leads to Stearn’s Wharf on the Pacific Ocean. Along State Street there are lots of amazing local shops, boutiques, eateries, galleries and cafes, all set against the beautiful Central Coast.
