Ecclectic local bookstore in Santa Barbara, California
My husband and I love to read, so anytime we visit a city, we have to check out their local bookstores. Book lovers won't regret stopping at Chaucer's Bookstore. Particularly if you love reading non-fiction- Chaucer's has a great selection of a variety of non-fiction. There is also a good enough selection of fiction, for my husband reads sci-fi and he finds something here every time we stop in.
If you're interested in history of California or Santa Barbara, they have a couple shelves dedicated to local books.
