THE Destination for All Things California
The Wayfarer is located in the Santa Barbara Funk Zone, home to the city’s burgeoning art scene. Pleasantly situated between the Pacific Ocean and Highway 101 in the vibrant downtown area, the Funk Zone is brimming with a vast collection of artisan shops, hip eateries, over 20 wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries. From winemakers to surfboard shapers to adventurous chefs, the creative certainly flock here to the delight of locals and visitors alike.
Every second Saturday, be sure to check out the Funk Zone Art Walk featuring local photography, paintings, mixed media and more. And don’t be fooled by unassuming warehouses—you’ll be surprised by all the culture within. The Funk Zone is also home to a majority of Santa Barbara’s Urban Wine Trail.
