The American Riviera

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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Wine Tours & Tastings and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. Get outdoors at Zuma Beach and Santa Monica Mountains. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Nicholas Canyon Beach (in Malibu) and Bob Jones City to Sea Bike Trail (in Avila Beach). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through State Street Underpass, immerse yourself in nature at El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park, identify plant and animal life at Douglas Family Preserve, and take in the waterfront at Stearns Wharf.

To find traveler tips, photos, reviews, and tourist information, read our Santa Barbara holiday maker website.

Expect a daytime high around 28°C in July, and nighttime lows around 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
