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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Camarillo Public Library (in Camarillo). Dedicate the 21st (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Old Mission Santa Barbara, do a tasting at Jaffurs Wine Cellars, wander the streets of State Street Underpass, and get a sense of history and politics at Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Ontario International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in May, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
