All of Santa Barbara is beautiful, but downtown is where the action awaits you. If you’re a go-getter that enjoys shopping, dining, and cultural attractions, head to State Street for (at least) a day of sightseeing. The eight-or-so blocks that comprise the downtown district are walkable and packed with fun for the whole family. This area is also very bicycle friendly; take advantage of the bike rentals available at area hotels and other businesses.
