Do us all a favor and don't come back to our little city if all you're going to do is trash what makes Santa Barbara beautiful and unique. The irony of brushing off State Street as "stale and corporate" but planning a return trip to visit the very pretentious and failing Public Market (with more abandoned and empty storefronts than ones that are actually open) is completely laughable.

1. It's obvious you did NOT read my entire blog post or even consider the fact that since I even wrote a blog post about visiting Santa Barbara, I was NOT trashing it. 2. My opinion about State Street has not changed. I don't think State Street is what makes SB beautiful or unique. I can go to several other little California towns, some much closer to me such as Pasadena, and have the same experience as I would have along State Street. 3. Perhaps the Public Market wouldn't be failing if SB locals would visit it more and stop bashing it in blog comments about how it is pretentious with abandoned and empty storefronts. I haven't visited it, so I did not know this about Public Market, which is why I stated I wanted to go back and visit it. 4. If you don't like what other people put up on their blogs, start your own! You can start with Let me know when you do! I can tell you that I will not visit your blog with any nasty comments about how State Street is "stale and corporate" because I understand how much hard works it takes to put up a blog post and I'm not an Internet Troll.

Ahhh that penny-covered building is amazing! And I would definitely stay in an Airstream - what a great idea for a "hotel."

I know! I love when people tile a floor in pennies and a penny wall is just so cool!
