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.
Explore hidden gems such as Cold Spring Tavern and Carpinteria State Beach. Visiting Cal Coast Adventures and Douglas Family Preserve will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cabrillo Bike Path, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, wander the streets of State Street Underpass, and enjoy the sand and surf at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park.

For traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Santa Barbara journey planning app .

In March, daytime highs in Santa Barbara are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
