This week, we’re  featuring an integral part of downtown Santa Barbara, and many tourists’ and locals’ favorite part of the area: State Street.

State Street has everything a tourist in Santa Barbara could want: beautiful street views, plenty of people watching opportunities, lots of places to shop, and just as many places to eat. It’s a huge Santa Barbara attraction, and we can see why! So if you’re trying to figure out things to do in Santa Barbara, this is a must.

Visiting State Street is great if you’re looking for romantic date ideas, because it gives you the chance to stroll hand in hand while admiring all that Santa Barbara has to offer.
