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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at State Street Underpass and Old Mission Santa Barbara. Get outdoors at Santa Monica Mountains and Nicholas Canyon Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Solvang (Wildling Museum of Art and Nature, Rusack Vineyards, & more), Malibu (Zuma Beach, El Pescador State Beach, & more) and Point Mugu Missile Park (in Port Hueneme). Pack the 21st (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Six Flags Magic Mountain. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, take in the waterfront at Stearns Wharf, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and stroll through Carpinteria State Beach.
