A nice place with shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants. It has a lovely chilled out vibe and well worth checking out. There are plenty of places to park on the side streets and are $7 for the day, so you can take a stroll...More

Lots of retailers and local shoppings going on in the street. It is a really delicate little street. You may even encounter movie stars!

We've spent time walking state street several times over the years but have been a bit disappointed lately with the quality of some stores and many vacancies. There are still some that make the walk worthwhile and a number of restaurants to choose from.

We visited in may. There's numerous shops and restaurants to eat at. The only negative we had was that the night we visited was mid week and the town was fairly quiet. The street is well lit and very clean. We really enjoyed our visit.

We like walking up and down State Street whenever we visit Santa Barbara. It's a tree-lined street with lots of interesting shops and restaurants, always lively with colorful local characters and tourists strolling around. Finding street parking can be problematic, whether it's mid-week or weekend....More

Lots to see and do invluding theaters. Public parking nearby is cheap.You can spend hours and hours here. Unique and familiar shops. Nice for a long stroll along this tree-shaded route. Other interesting sights are nearby including the Public Market and the Courthouse.

I've seen the cruise ships dock far out. They seem to shuttle the people into land. State street is just opposite Stern's wharf . You'll need to walk about 2.5 blocks till you come to businesses. I could walk it but I... More

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.
