About Santa Barbara
Tapped the “American Riviera”, the city of Santa Barbara is perfectly situated between the mountains and the ocean. East Beach is the main beach for tourists and beach volleyball, while West Beach allows water sports, with the exception of swimming. The Santa Barbara Pier, also known as Stearns Wharf, separates the two, with plenty of souvenir shops and fresh seafood to be had. Meanwhile, downtown’s State Street offers seven miles of retail stores, with everything from boutiques to thrift shops.
