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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ventura Pier and Promenade (in Ventura), Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Malibu (The Getty Villa, Zuma Beach, & more). Dedicate the 23rd (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Old Mission Santa Barbara, stroll through Butterfly Beach, immerse yourself in nature at Carpinteria State Beach, and enjoy breathtaking views from Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Ontario International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
