Santa Barbara Sterns Warf

State Street is the heart of the Santa Barbara commerce district. The downtown area stretches eight blocks from Haley Street to Victoria St. and spreads out at each intersection with additional stores.

The walk from Stern's Wharf at the corner of Cabrillo Blvd. and State Street is about five blocks. This desolate area between the Wharf and the beginning of the downtown area looks like revitalization waiting to happen.

The free trolley ride from the wharf to the downtown area helps to shuffle those visitors who are unable to make the long walk.

The Amtrak train station just north of Stern's Warf, off State Street.

Looking north near the intersection of Cabrillo Blvd. and State Street where Stern's Wharf begins. The Californian Hotel is seen in the upper left.

State Street is dotted with locally owned clothing and specialty shops, restaurants and chain-stores that transparently fit into the architectural design.

The first and the last Sambo's restaurant in the country across from the Harbor on 216 W. Cabrillo Blvd. (805-965-3269), just west of State Street. Sambo's is owned and operated by the same family that started it in 1957. Sit outside on the patio or in the original dining area that pioneered the chain restaurant. Santa Barbara is also the home of the first Motel 6. Purchase discount restaurant gift certificates from some of Santa Barbara's favorite spots.
