Nestled along the sloping hills just above the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara offers a quaint setting for California vacations. With its Spanish-style buildings of red-tiled roofs and white stucco walls, the city sparkles with golden beaches, blue skies and palm trees that line its curving bay. Experience State Street, the city's main drag of savory restaurants and upscale shopping, tour the famous Santa Barbara Mission, rent bicycles along the coast or experience horseback riding on trails that overlook the Pacific Ocean.
Aside from its beautiful weather and exquisite beaches, Santa Barbara also boasts a well-respected wine region, with as many as 115 wineries and 21,000 acres of vineyards. Just 90 miles north of the hustle and bustle of LA, guests from around the world visit Santa Barbara's coastal sanctuary every year.
