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.
Explore Santa Barbara's surroundings by going to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Camarillo Public Library (in Camarillo). Dedicate the 19th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Old Mission Santa Barbara, tour the pleasant surroundings at Santa Barbara Zoo, learn about winemaking at Jaffurs Wine Cellars, and take in the waterfront at Stearns Wharf.
