After an unusually wet winter for Santa Barbara, we can now feel a true shift in the season. With sunny skies, and temperatures warming up, Santa Barbara is bustling with visitors and locals.
One of best parts about staying in Downtown Santa Barbara during beautiful weather is the shopping. The outdoor malls, tucked away paseos and hidden boutiques are perfect to explore on a sunny day. Even better are the unique shops in our building, right outside our front door.
