I have done my morning trek in San Jose, Yountville, Santa Cruz, Carmel, and now Santa Barbara.
|State Street downtown Santa Barbara|
|this was busy just 12 hours before|
State street is actually quiet lengthy spanning about two-three cities as you go across town. From the seashore to Goleta State Street spans the area and you want to stop off and just walk the distance.
Another thing is you can not get really lost in downtown Santa Barbara but you can find yourself lost inside of it. The Downtown area of State Street sports shopping district that includes Saks Fifth Avenue to Yogurtland. Where the other end you will find some housing and businesses and a hospital system.
Yes, I took the bus too. The 11x line connects UCSB to Downtown Santa Barbara. The trip is about 50 minutes total. Once you land in Downtown its a short walk to the shore and the train station.
The train station is a historic building so there isn't any signage on the building yet both Amtrak and Greyhound service the area. The Amtrak train also goes by the Santa Barbara Zoo.
While I enjoyed my morning walk I did find myself finding there is other modes of transportation too
