Stearns Wharf

Located on Santa Barbara’s waterfront at the end of State Street, Stearns Wharf is a favored spot for both locals and tourists. There are numerous restaurant and shopping options to browse through, as well as the chance to hop on a yacht cruise or take a water taxi to the Sea Center for a look at some of the ocean’s magnificent creatures. Strolling along the old wooden pier is free, and there is paid parking or street parking in close proximity.
