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 get in some beach time at Thousand Steps Beach and Oxnard Beach Park. Step out of the city life by going to Douglas Family Preserve and Bob Jones City to Sea Bike Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Ventura (Dudley House Historical Museum, Mission San Buenaventura, & more), Lompoc (La Purisima State Historical Park, Surf Beach, & more) and Solvang (Rusack Vineyards, Toccata Tasting Room, & more). Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Santa Monica Mountains, tour the pleasant surroundings at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, make a trip to Chaucer's Bookstore, and enjoy the sand and surf at East Beach.

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. March in Santa Barbara sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 10°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
