Imagine London, Sydney or Buenos Aires - great food, great shopping, great culture. Now shrink it to about 20 square miles. Delete traffic and noisy, crowded streets. Keep the pedestrian-friendly, easy-to-get-around part plus the great architecture. Add wine. Now surround it with beautiful mountains, rolling valleys and miles of beautiful beach. Don't forget beautiful hotels and outstanding restaurants! Welcome to the American Riviera®.
Santa Barbara County Courthouse designed by William Mooser III in the Spanish-Moorish architectural style, this working courthouse is surrounded by landscaped gardens and lawns. The court house was built after the 1925 earthquake and covers an entire block near the city center. The view of the red-tiled city from the court house clock tower is hard to beat and walking through the mural room - an active court room - is a lasting experience.
The Granada - home of the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts, The Granada in beautiful Downtown Santa Barbara is a year-round entertainment venue featuring local and international acts on tour, including Classical and Pop concerts, Broadway musicals, Theatre, Dance and more.
Moreton Bay Fig Tree - massive tree. It's seen a lots of years, and has a very interesting history, which is provided on plaques surrounding it. It provides a quiet and shady spot to relax or read. It's rare a single tree can demand this much attention. It's sheer size commands respect and shows that even individual pieces of nature are worth preserving.
Shoreline Park is loved for after work walks. The people watching is awesome, and the view is amaze. Lot's of surfers! Some great flowering trees and lot's of sea birds! Close to both downtown and good seafood eateries, I highly recommend Shoreline Park as a after-meal strolling location. On street level, there are winding bike paths occupied by riders and dog walkers. Take a set of wooden stairs down and you find yourself immersed in scenic views.
State Street is best explored on foot. There's a large array of shopping for every taste and budget. Also various restaurants, cafes and bars for all taste buds. There's even a movie theatre and play house. Something for everyone. State St has a lot going for it. Plenty of shopping, some national chains but lots of local boutiques. There's lots of restaurants, burgers to coffee to beer to seafood. The architecture is impressive.
