Santa Barbara

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Barbara: Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Camarillo Public Library (in Camarillo). Dedicate the 16th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Old Mission Santa Barbara, wander the streets of State Street Underpass, take in the waterfront at Stearns Wharf, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Santa Barbara Zoo.

In April, daily temperatures in Santa Barbara can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
