Most Businesses On South Coast Landmark Closed By Coronavirus Now Reopened


It’s back to business at a South Coast landmark. Santa Barbara’s Stearns Wharf wasn’t closed by the coronavirus crisis, but the more than dozen businesses on it were forced to shut their doors. Most of them have now reopened.

While motels and hotels aren’t technically open to tourists yet, they could reopen soon, and the Wharf is a popular spot for visitors. A wine tasting room, and a museum have yet to reopen, but they could potentially open their doors again as soon as this weekend. It’s already been a busy spot on weekends, with people visiting the city for the day.
