A lot to see and absorb. The people-watching can't be beat. You will see people from all over the world. Lots of little shops and art galleries and great restaurants.
Don't let the "homeless" put you off. Ignore them and know that there are many resources for them here; those that are begging only want money for drink or drugs.
Be sure and walk to the beach and maybe you will want to hire a surrey or bike along the "Beach Way" bike path. Have fun. Santa Barbara does have loads of charm.
