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.
Step out of the city life by going to Carpinteria State Beach and Cabrillo Bike Path. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cold Spring Tavern and Fess Parker. Step out of Santa Barbara with an excursion to Sunstone Vineyards & Winery in Santa Ynez--about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, make a trip to Moreton Bay Fig Tree, see Cal Coast Adventures, and admire all the interesting features of Santa Barbara Scenic Drive.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Santa Barbara vacation site .

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in December, and nighttime lows around 41°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
