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.
Family-friendly places like Carpinteria State Beach and Santa Barbara Maritime Museum will thrill your kids. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ventura Harbor Village and Old Mission Santa Ines. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Visitor Center (in Solvang) and La Purisima State Historical Park (in Lompoc). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Cold Spring Tavern, examine the collection at Reagan Ranch Center, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, and learn more about the world around you at Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

To see where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Santa Barbara holiday planning website .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Ontario International Airport. August in Santa Barbara sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 18°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
