This is a beautiful little courtyard in the heart of downtown. There are stores around the courtyard as well as some excellent restaurants and an amazing chocolate store. The courtyard itself is nicely landscaped with statues and fountains. Outdoor seating for some of the restaurants...More

The statues, the fountain, the turtles, the shops and eateries, and did I mention the turtles? This is a very pleasant urban oasis, close to the art museum and the court house. Definitely worth going through.

Keep walking up the SB main drag (State Street) till you come to this outstanding passeo (passage) at Figuroa. Fun art, fun shops, fun food options & great photo ops. Plus, you gotta see the Famous Turtle Fountain

MUST VISIT! Beautiful Courtyard full of art, statues and fountains. Shady seating terraces with a real European vibe. Check out the turtles basking in the sun in the fountain pool. Stop for breakfast/brunch at Jeanines.

An adorable little arcade full of art, restaurants, shops and a turtle pond. My favorite stop is always the bronze statues and the best shop in my opinion is the ecclectic store with the "windo Washer" bronze. And right around the corner is Andersen's Danish...More

Small children will be interested in the working sculptures, as indeed adults will be. The turtles are also interesting to watch.

Surprise! The fellow that looks like he is cleaning the window isn’t real. But let him lure you from State Street into the courtyard. Have someone take your photo sitting next to a bronze Ben Franklin. Then peak into the art gallery on the corner...More
