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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Barbara side-trips: Ventura (Calboat Diving - Spectre Dive Boat & Fox Fine Jewelry). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Old Mission Santa Barbara, wander the streets of State Street Underpass, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center, and take in panoramic vistas at Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

For more things to do and other tourist information, refer to the Santa Barbara trip itinerary builder website.
