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.
We've included these beaches for you: Zuma Beach and Thousand Steps Beach. Get in touch with nature at State Street Underpass and Jalama Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Santa Barbara: Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Nicholas Canyon Beach (in Malibu). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Old Mission Santa Barbara, meet the residents at Santa Barbara Zoo, do a tasting at Jaffurs Wine Cellars, and take in panoramic vistas at Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

Plan my Santa Barbara trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

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 29°C in October, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
