- Shopping Centers
Paseo Nuevo is the South Coast's most distinctive collection of unique, upscale merchants between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The center is located in the commercial and retail heart of downtown Santa Barbara - an international mecca for those seeking luxurious surf, sun and shopping. Visitors can stroll the sun-drenched promenade and the winding paseos surrounded by over 60 boutiques, two department stores, and many eclectic restaurants. Opened in 1990, the center is anchored by Nordstrom and Macy's. Presented in a charming open-air Mediterranean setting, Paseo Nuevo's mix of exclusive local and national shops and restaurants includes bebe, California Pizza Kitchen, Banana Republic, Cotton On, Pascucci, Cache, Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap.
