Santa Barbara Waterfront And Stearns Wharf - Review

Stearns Wharf is indisputably the most beautiful wharf on the California coast. Santa Barbara’s most popular landmark today, it is lined with souvenirshops and several places where you can sample seafood.  The SB Shellfish Co, located near the south end of the wharf has some amazing lobster bisque and also offers full lobster dinners at very reasonable prices.

Named after its builder, John P. Stearns, the wharf single-handedly served the passenger and freight shipping needs of California's South Coast for over a quarter century since the completion of its construction in 1872.

At the time, it was the longest deep-water pier between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The construction of the Harbor Restaurant in 1941 was a real landmark, as not only did it mark the end of the shipping and transportation era of the 1800’s, the restaurant went on to become the economic backbone of the wharf.

The Stearns Wharf has weathered its fair share of storms in its time, so to speak, with two major fires and an earthquake in the last century alone. Much restoration work ensued after these natural and economic disasters and the wharf, thus, endures till today, a significant symbol.

Suffice to say, no visit to Santa Barbara would be complete without a stroll down this beauty and a trademark photograph overlooking the wharf.
