Reviewed September 13, 2013

Visiting my Navy son stationed in Central California, we made a day trip to beautiful and historic Santa Barbara. I asked a former resident what must-see attractions we should emphasize on a day trip and he emphatically recommended the Shoreline Park and especially on a weekend with the Art Fair in full operation. On the main road winding along the coastline and waterfront in Santa Barbara, it's impossible to miss this beautiful, wandering park. Finding nearby (paid) parking was very easy and we were thrilled with the mile of local artists displaying and selling unique artwork from simple items for a few dollars to exquisite pieces in the thousands (something for all ages, tastes and budgets). In the middle of the park is a pier with restaurants and museums. We all enjoyed a tasty seafood lunch in an elevated, outside dining area that provided an outstanding view of the ocean, park and beach in several directions. A must see during your visit to romantic and beautiful Santa Barbara!

One can actually park on the street and walk to the beach! From there it is a view of the Pacific, sailboats, and white sand. Heaven!

Difficult to write a review of this place as the majority of its charm is in its shear beauty. it is stunning walk along the seafront with the beach and sea on one side the beautiful hills behind you, the pier, the boats the general ambiance of the place - just stunning. even the stalls along the promenade are mostly tasteful with some brilliant art works on display. what a beautiful place i will definitely be returning.

We loved the art show and sale by local artists! Wish I had bought more items! Beautiful items for the yard and metal workers for the house, my friend bought new house numbers in copper!

We walked here late one afternoon on our trip. We could see the fog moving in across the water. Really pretty. Nice place.
