Santa Barbara

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Fox Fine Jewelry (in Ventura), Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita). There's lots more to do: awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, contemplate the long history of Old Mission Santa Barbara, get to know the resident critters at Santa Barbara Zoo, and wander the streets of State Street Underpass.

To see photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Santa Barbara day trip planner .

In August, daytime highs in Santa Barbara are 76°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
