We have not visited Santa Barbara for many years and I am afraid it has faded over the years. The street is still tree lined and pretty but it is not the prosperous place it was. A lot of the food outlets are fairly cheap...More

State Street is a great place to take a walk at your own pace and do a little shopping, a little dining, or just watching the people. It's clean and beautiful and filled with an eclectic variety of shops and restaurants.

Lots of shops and restaurants to choose from, easy to park, and leads down to the beach and pier via a short underpass. Only wish I'd had more time to explore the place before moving on.

I think that's a great idea and it lets you off right where you want to be in SB! Call or email Amtrak for schedule. From Union Station the ride is 2 hours.
