Santa Barbara and the Central Coast Shopping

State Street

Fodor's Review

Between Cabrillo Boulevard and Sola Street, State Street is a shopper's paradise. Chic malls, quirky storefronts, antiques emporia, elegant boutiques, and funky thrift shops abound. You can shop on foot or ride a battery-powered trolley (50ยข) that runs between the waterfront and the 1300 block. Nordstrom and Macy's anchor Paseo Nuevo, an open-air mall in the 700 block. Shops, restaurants, galleries, and fountains line the tiled walkways of La Arcada, a small

complex of landscaped courtyards in the 1100 block designed by architect Myron Hunt in 1926.
