Right off the tender dock, this park is a lovely park to walk along and easy access to State Street bus and the Funk Zone.

Good place to walk if you want to see views of Santa Barbara, the harbor and wharf and along the beaches to the south.

Enjoy a nice walk at Shoreline Park! Great Views of the Ocean the whole walk. Great Family Pace! Dogs are allowed!

Great place for a relaxing bike ride, but the overwhelming presence of homeless people prevented us from lingering and enjoying. It didn't feel entirely clean or safe.

We rented some bikes and cycled the front, very safe with mostly cycle lanes, so keeping away from the traffic. Great way to see the beachfront.

We spent two days and one night in Santa Barbara so we crammed alot into that time. I would take another day next time. We enjoyed the histiry and overall vibe of the area.

A good way to see areas too far to visit on foot. An informative tour. Would not use this as a hop on and hop off. Not very frequent.

It was just in front our hotel. We enjoyed lookingredients from our terrace and also to walk and drive the shore

Great way along the ocean, we rented bikes and cycled parts of it, made food- and swimmingstops whenever and wherever we wanted, would totally recommend that, it was a lovely and absolutely relaxing day!

Enjoyed this area very much as a wonderful end to our day during a touring holiday. We were at the opposite end to the beach but it was still walkable within about 30 minutes

Hello, Yes, there are a many places for just such an activity. Shoreline is a little louder and more of a picnic feel than other beach spots. So Shoreline is good if you want a place to BBQ and have a "party" kind of... More

I wish I knew the answer to that question. I have been there a few times and will go again as my family lives in that area I have always felt that it was just plain luck to see them but if I find out I will post it.
