Built in the ubiquitous Spanish Mission style of downtown Santa Barbara, the indoor-outdoor Paseo Nuevo shopping center
is right in the heart of the city's retail and entertainment district, at the corner of State and De La Guerra streets. Anchored by Macy's and Nordstrom, the upscale complex with tile walkways and outdoor terraces opened in 1990 and contains more than 50 shops, mostly of the stylish chain variety: Abercrombie & Fitch, Aldo, Aveda, Banana Republic Men, Chico's, Express, Juicy Couture, L'Occitane, Lucky Brand Jeans, Nine West, Papyrus, Sephora, Victoria's Secret, and White House/Black Market among them. You'll also find about a dozen casual restaurants (California Pizza Kitchen, Chipotle, Ben & Jerry's, etc.), and a couple of theaters. Paseo Nuevo is smack in the middle of downtown, meaning it's also a very short walk to countless fine restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, and still many more boutiques and shops.
