Passionate shoppers understand something others just don't get: shopping isn't just about where you go and what you get - it's a total sensory experience.
Just as destination golf is so much more than the links, world-class shopping is a symphony of sights, scents and sounds. It's the vistas as you move from one venue to the next, the perfume of flowers mingling with the smell of steaming strong coffee and fresh-baked croissants, the splash of fountains under glassy blue skies. It's the fun and familiar artfully jumbled with experiences surprising and new.
In short, it's shopping Santa Barbara, from the bohemian vibe of The Funk Zone to the genteel cobblestone walkways of State Street to sunny expanses of plein air plazas and promenades.
With a mélange of shops and galleries featuring the names you know and love, Santa Barbara serves up shopping as only The American Riviera® can. Cruise these districts to find exactly what you're looking for:
• La Arcada: Located in the heart of the State Street shopping sector, La Arcada offers an enclave of nook shops and boutique options. • Arlington Plaza: If you're downtown, look skyward until you spot the unmissable steeple of the Arlington Theatre. Head in that direction until you come upon the famous performance center, and then cross the street to this famed plaza, full of high end stores and brand names.• La Cumbre Plaza: Take a trip to upper State Street where you'll find the local's mall, filled with all of your favorite store fronts, from J.Crew and Pottery Barn to Williams-Sonoma and Tiffany & Co. Stop by the Management Office or ask your concierge for Shopping & Dining Visitor Rewards.• Funk Zone: This beloved waterfront neighborhood is the perfect place to find that one gift that stands apart. From bohemian shops to artisan wines and gourmet goods to shops spilling over with Santa Barbara surf culture, unique purchases are sure to be found here.• Paseo Nuevo: Explore over 50 stores off of State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Upscale names and popular brands line brick walkways. Need a break? Settle into a park bench or patio, surrounded by bubbling fountains and lush greenery.• Presidio District: A short walk off the beaten path, you'll find this locals' favorite. Select shops make up a small group of savory stores, specializing in everything from gourmet cheeses and breads to handmade jewelry.• SoCo: South of Cota Street you'll find a hip district that specializes in men's and women's clothing-both new and fun from top Hollywood costume designers to retro gems at consignment stores.• Waterfront: If souvenirs are what you seek, the Waterfront and Stearns Wharf are where you'll find them. The Santa Barbara Harbor features a variety of seafront shops, restaurants and museums. Or wander down the way to Stearns Wharf-a must for that perfect Santa Barbara souvenir.• Victoria Court: Duck into this courtyard right off of lower State Street for access to independent shops and some of the city's best restaurants.
