The waterfront marina in Santa Barbara is approximately 252 acres of tidelands with mooring and storage facilities for boats. The amazing array of botanicals along the boardwalks and beaches adds to the beauty of this place. Truly a place of inspiration, sitting on the patio of one of the many beach side restaurants or taking a long walk is highly recommended.
Brophy Bros. a seafood restaurant that was established in 1986 by a local family, the Bennett’s makes the best clam chowder on this side of the coast. (I am partial to Cape Breton chowder but this chowder was amazing and had a great ratio of seafood to potatoes).
We ate a whole bowl of boiled clams, shrimp and mussels with amazing sourdough bread dipped into the tasty broth.
The restaurant participates in the Sustainable Seafood Program so you can be certain that the meal you enjoy is not over-fished and does not produce unnecessary environmental damage in its fishing.
