Stearns Wharf reviews
I absolutely loved Stearns Wharf! When you live in CA you forget to appreciate the beauty of our piers. This is one is stunning and has these little quant stores along the way. It was so peaceful, as opposed to some other piers I go to! I smelled the fresh air and just enjoyed the wind in my hair! Also, they have excellent restaurants at the end of the pier!!!
A beautiful pier to walk down as the sun sets. The iconic view of Santa Barbara’s palm trees along the shore. Enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of the dock at Deep Sea Winery, with a take out chippy from the restaurant below. Also at the end of the pier, a nice restaurant and valet parking if needed.
