If you believe you can tackle all that Santa Barbara has to offer in just one day, you my friend, are truly mistaken. Between the can’t-beat beaches, adventure-awaiting mountains, full-belly foodie scene, the shop-till you drop State Street, and an unmistakable arts and cultural backdrop, fitting all of Santa Barbara into even just one weekend might pose a challenge. Now that…
It’s easy to see the allure of Santa Barbara: long stretches of tawny sand edging an expanse of ocean, an imposing backdrop of chaparral-covered mountains, and in between, a ribbon of land that is home to four exciting cities — Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito and Summerland. Santa Barbara and surrounding areas welcome families and individuals who enjoy the outdoors, sports, arts and culture, fine food and wine. There’s something for everyone… and three days will give you a chance to sample its charms.
