“Fun Place to People Watch!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

A great walking street with all sorts of stores and a few shopping centers -not to mention both Nordstroms and Sak's. And there are the shops off State Street.... and then there is the wonderful Tuesday 4-6pm Farmers' Market!

“The perfect downtown street”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Every 'main' street in America should be so beautiful! Take a day walk to explore all of the nooks and crannies, wonderful shops and restaurants.

There are a lot of cool shops and restaurants on State Street. Go shopping and enjoy a nice meal - tons of choices of either.

“Visit on Market Day (Tuesdays)”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We lucked out as it was Market Day when we arrived in Santa Barbara. Several blocks of State Street were closed off to vehicular traffic and dozens of stalls were set up selling an incredible array of fresh fruit, vegetables and other food products. It was impossible not to buy some treats and the prices were generally quite reasonable. Of course, you can browse through the regular stores that line both sides of the street. While e usual chains are present (particularly in the Nuevo Paseo mall) there is a decent selection of one-of-kind stores selling clothes, art and collectibles together with bars and restaurants.

Reviewed March 18, 2013

There seem to be more nail/massage locations then before. Many empyty store fronts than before. 2 of the stores I enjoyed are gone. Not as enjoyable as before
