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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Barbara side-trips: Pismo Beach (Monarch Butterfly Grove & Pismo Pier), Simi Valley (Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum & Rocky Peak Trail) and Santa Clarita (Six Flags Magic Mountain & The Gentle Barn). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. There's much more to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, take an in-depth tour of Santa Barbara Historical Museum, take in panoramic vistas at Santa Barbara County Courthouse, and don't miss a visit to Santa Barbara Harbor.

In December in Santa Barbara, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 41°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
