Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara is a solid vacation destination with its wide beaches, renowned wineries, and some of California's finest shopping and dining options.
Relax by the water at Carpinteria State Beach and Arroyo Burro County Beach Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like La Purisima Mission State Historic Park and Fess Parker. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Barbara: Solvang (Old Mission Santa Ines, Rusack Vineyards, & more), San Buenaventura Mission (in Ventura) and Ostrich Land (in Buellton). Dedicate the 24th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cold Spring Tavern, learn about winemaking at Carhartt Vineyard, explore the world behind art at Santa Barbara Museum Of Art, and trek along Cabrillo Bike Path.
