Santa Barbara is filled with innovative arts and craft stores, rare antique shops, fashion boutiques with designer clothes, shopping complexes, and specialty gift shops. From upscale venues like Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, to "big box" warehouses such as Costco and Home Depot, Santa Barbara offers a wide variety of shopping venues. Following are a few of the most popular shopping areas, beginning with downtown on State Street and continuing north to the largest local mall in the neighboring city of Goleta.

  La Cumbre Plaza - One of Santa Barbara's largest shopping malls is La Cumbre Plaza, located on the 3800 block of upper State Street. Serving shoppers since 1967, it includes two department stores, Macy's and Sears, and more than 40 shops, restaurants, services and lots of free parking. The shopping center derives its name from the highest point in the surrounding mountains, La Cumbre Peak. Stop by Guest Services for your Shopping & Dining Visitors Rewards!

Homegrown, Santa Barbara-Style:Just as Santa Barbara itself, luxury sits side-by-side with relaxed, everyday comfort. At La Cumbre Plaza, you’ll find must-have brands next to everyday necessities. Convenience is an indulgence too, after all.
