Sunset at Butterfly #Beach Sunset Santa Barbara tonight, Aug 30, 2017. #kidsfun come to the skatepark here in Cali to bad I can't skate lol looks fun though. Giant fig tree by the train station in Santa Barbara. Stearns Wharf is located in the harbor in Santa Barbara, California, United States. When completed In 1872, it became the longest deep-water Wharf between San Pedro and San Francisco. Named for its builder, local lumberman John P. Stearns, the wharf served the passenger and freight shipping needs of California’s South Coast for over a quarter century.
There are seventeen businesses on the Wharf: Three full service restaurants, a shellfish restaurant/market, a bait and tackle shop, an old fashioned candy store, wine tasting, a toy store, a shell shop, an ice cream parlor, a palm reader, a general store with clothing/souvenirs, and a marine museum with an interactive marine education facility. There is plenty to do, eat, and enjoy on the wharf all year long! Oyster Rockefeller! #delicious Cioppino! Enjoy a taste of locally made wine at the Deep Sea Tasting Room on Stearns Wharf, Santa Barbara's Pier and the city's most visited landmark.

#FindingtheUniverse Not a long drive from LA , good for a nice day getaway Just a few more weeks until I’m back home in paradise! Stearn's Wharf in Santa Barbara has plenty of fun activities and shops for the young and the young at heart. Loved watching the morning fog over the ocean. #Blue #sunsetview #clouds #serene #BeachBound The West Beach area of the Santa Barbara waterfront has a lot of offer, but the beach itself is best for volleyball, kayaking, and boating. Because it’s so close to the harbor, swimming is not advised from the beach. Look for parking along Cabrillo Blvd, in the lot just east of the pier at Garden Street, or even on the pier. Laying in the sand, look back for a gorgeous view of the mountains over the red tile roof buildings.
