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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Thousand Steps Beach and Casa del Herrero. Museum-lovers will appreciate Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts. Venture out of the city with trips to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley), La Purisima State Historical Park (in Lompoc) and Old Mission Santa Ines (in Solvang). There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Carpinteria State Beach, learn about winemaking at Grassini Family Vineyards, and don't miss a visit to Old Mission Santa Barbara.

For maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Santa Barbara day trip planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 75°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
