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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Barbara side-trips: Fox Fine Jewelry (in Ventura), Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita) and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley). The adventure continues: indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, stroll around Shoreline Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Santa Barbara Zoo, and wander the streets of State Street Underpass.
