Tips

  • Avoid bare feet or wearing high heels on Stearns Wharf because of the uneven wooden surface, splinters, and numerous knot holes. You'll also want to dress in layers, use sun screen, and tie down your hat.
  • Santa Barbara's Breakwater is a concrete pedestrian walkway and protective seawall that provides a great way to view the harbor on one side and sailboats on the other. Sometimes waves splash up and over the wall. Don't forget to duck!
  • To see what Santa Barbara has to offer, start your visit with a 90-minute Trolley Tour. Passes are valid all day. Second consecutive day and re-boarding are free. You get the tour, loads of discounts, and free stuff with every ticket.
  • If you're on Stearns Wharf and want to visit the Harbor (or vice versa) but don't feel like walking, take the water taxi. Lil' Toot is a fun ride and a harbor mini-tour at the same time.
  • You can take the Downtown-Waterfront Electric Shuttle for just a quarter. If you want a free transfer between the Downtown and Waterfront shuttles, be sure to ask for it upon boarding. Fares are one way.
  • UPDATES as of 2014: Rusty's Pizza Restaurant has closed. The Harbor Queen is no longer in the harbor.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
