Santa Barbara — 2 nights

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.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Thu): admire the landmark architecture of Santa Barbara County Courthouse and then awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Old Mission Santa Barbara, take a stroll through State Street Underpass, then learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Santa Barbara Zoo, and finally take in the waterfront at Stearns Wharf.

To plan Santa Barbara vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
