Santa Barbara Ocean Front, California

Blessed with a warm climate, a south-facing coastline and views of rolling hills, Santa Barbara's waterfront is a picturesque and pleasant place for a stroll. The fine sands of the elongated East Beach and the shorter West Beach are separated by Stearns Wharf, a fairly uncommercial wooden pier jutting out into the ocean. Although you have to navigate some busy roads to get here from Santa Barba's downtown, it is well worth the walk - the sand can be almost empty even on sunny August days, leaving plenty of space for ball games and the like.
