Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Oxnard Beach Park (in Oxnard), Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts (in Ojai) and Ventura to Ojai Paved Bike Path (in Ventura). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, learn about winemaking at Margerum Wine Company, and enjoy some diversion at The Santa Barbara Art Foundry.
