Santa Barbara

— 2 nights

The American Riviera

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Old Mission Santa Barbara and Casa del Herrero. Visiting Carpinteria State Beach and East Beach will get you outdoors. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cabrillo Bike Path, take a stroll through State Street Underpass, look for all kinds of wild species at Douglas Family Preserve, and get curious at MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation.
