Santa Barbara

— 4 nights

The American Riviera

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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Casa del Herrero and Demetria Winery & Vineyard. Get some cultural insight at Wine Tours & Tastings and Fess Parker. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Barbara: Santa Maria (Rancho Sisquoc Winery & Presqu'ile Winery) and Los Olivos (Carhartt Family Wines & Andrew Murray Vineyards). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at East Beach, explore the engaging exhibits at Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, get to know the fascinating history of The Historic La Arcada Courtyard, and walk around Arroyo Burro County Beach Park.

To see maps, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Santa Barbara trip planner.

In September in Santa Barbara, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 58°F at night.
