We didn't come back here after our city tour. It's one of the many places in San Sebastian to walk. Our hotel was a little distance from here so we walked closer to the beach area which also has great shops.

This is a very small outdoor type mall. If you needed something that you forgot to pack you could find it. There is a small Nordstrom's-it is very nice, but again small. There were some other small stores, some not open during normal business hours....More

With a classic style that invites strolling down the brick sidewalks, the new Paseo shows, theater and restaurants are a treat. The See's Candies provides free samples and the theater plays four films in smaller venues.

We were given a recommendation to this restaurant by a local. He said they had a good variety of seafood. That turned out to be inaccurate. There was a variety of local fish and the local fish was well prepared

An attractive 'plaza' arrangement with its own little streets, nooks and crannies. It's in the form of a crescent so you can enter from and return to State Street several metres on. You'll find a wide variety of everything retail and restaurants. It's smack in...More

It's unfortunate for Paseo Nuevo that the retail world is currently sinking due to the current online shopping presence. In Santa Barbara, this lovely, long block brick walkway just off of State St., is an ideal location for retail therapy, but it's clear that they...More

This small mall is a U-shaped passageway which is lined with more up-market shops and eateries. It is a pleasant stroll on a warm day. It has parking at the rear and some nice seating areas to rest or watch the passing parade.

In downtown Santa Barbara, the Paseo Nuevo runs north and south between State St. and Chapala St. It is a brick walkway (no vehicles) that can be accessed on all sides and thru Nordstrom on the north end.
