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.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Fri): ponder the world of politics at Santa Barbara County Courthouse, admire all the interesting features of State Street Underpass, and then awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area. On the 24th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a leisurely stroll along Stearns Wharf, steep yourself in history at Old Mission Santa Barbara, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Santa Barbara Zoo, then learn about winemaking at Margerum Wine Company, and finally do a tasting at Grassini Family Vineyards.

To find more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Santa Barbara trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 76°F in August, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
