In keeping with the city’s rich maritime history, the Santa Barbara Waterfront is a vibrant stretch of local restaurants, shops and artists. The two most popular waterfront destinations are Stearns Wharf, a 130-year old structure home to the Ty Warner Sea Center natural history museum, and The Harbor, whose pier offers some of the best boat watching in the city.

Seniors enjoying assisted living in Santa Barbara take a break from sun and surf by visiting some of the area’s scenic attractions. The Santa Barbara Mission is considered one of the most beautiful Missions in California and has continued to actively function as a church since its founding in 1786.
