As the Eagles warned us, be careful about calling a place paradise, but I must admit, you are not far from the truth. Three important features you inadvertantly forgot to mention: Joe's Cafe on lower State Street where the ghosts of 1920's politicos making water deals float around the 20 foot ceiling, the Valley Club of Montecito that you can't play and neither can I (although in the early 70's it was possible for a college student to walk on late on a Sunday afternoon without adverse consequences), and McConnell's of Santa Barbara Ice Cream.

PANAMA

What about the magnificent courthouse, Stearn's Wharf, the excellent natural history museum, and upper State Street where the really good restaurants are. (Joe's Cafe. Don't make me laugh.)

Check out the James Joyce pub on State St.
This is a great place to stop in for a pint.

Ssubnel...took his ball and went home

I love the Palace Cafe on Cota off of State. Nothing better than an Amber Voodoo on a sunny afternoon while eating jambalya west of the Mississippi.
