Whale Watching.....

Running, walking, people watching...all with a view. All winter we would spot whales, dolphins & sea lions. Love seeing family and friends utilizing a little taste of paradise...

If you lie to walk this is a good destination from town. At the top there are steps down to a quiet cove at the beach.

We just happened upon this park when walking to Stearns Wharf for dinner. If I ever get back to Santa Barbara, I would love to walk the length of this to soak up the beach atmosphere and scenery. We parked in a large parking lot adjacent to the walking path. We saw the beach, picnics, vendors, beautiful plants and flowers... More

This was a beautiful park and a great quite spot to walk in the sand! We loved walking up and down the coast with clean sand and the cold water! there is a lot of small drift wood that you can write in the sand with!

This is just what we imagined California to be - girls on roller skates - sun, sea and marina - really pretty - had a lovely time here.

This is a beautiful park to let the kids run, exercise or just sit and read. It runs parallel to the ocean, so you can't beat the view! It's also the perfect park to just relax and read a book or people watch. Tip: Be sure to visit on a Sunday so you can see all the art vendors! :D

Was in town for a wedding, saw all the people setting up tents,BBQ and games for the 4th of July celebration. We stopped and talked with a guy and he was so nice to give us the history of how it all works.. It seems like such a history of celebration for locals.. It was such a nice park.

Shoreline Park is outstanding location for walking and biking right along the beach in Santa Barbara, California. The palm tree lined park stretches both north and south of Stearns Wharf, the boardwalk and pier stretching out from State Street into the Pacific Ocean right in the center of Santa Barbara. Shoreline Park is also adjacent to lake next to the... More

We did not use the park, rather we decided to take the steps and get down to the beach. We really enjoyed walking in the morning (and afternoon again!) on this beach for hours, My daughter kept galloping on the sand. A great place for taking pictures.

Seeing Santa Barbara without a walk along Shoreline Park would be...a loss! Truly one of the West Coast's more romantic, beautiful, pristine & awe-inspiring vistas! Perfectly located along the South Coast, this is a "selfie-paradise" as well. Not to be missed in SB!
