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.
Take a break from the city and head to State Street Underpass and Carpinteria State Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Zuma Beach and Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley), Fox Fine Jewelry (in Ventura) and Santa Monica Mountains (in Santa Monica). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Old Mission Santa Barbara, identify plant and animal life at Monarch Butterfly Grove, take in panoramic vistas at Santa Barbara County Courthouse, and learn about winemaking at Jaffurs Wine Cellars.
