Beyond the South Coast

Beyond the South Coast, take a drive or train ride to the quaint towns in the Santa Ynez Valley, just north of Santa Barbara, where you’ll find incredible outdoor adventures, unique seasonal activities, local mom-and-pop stores and restaurants, and wine tasting in vineyards as far as the eye can see.

The culinary movement is alive and well in Santa Barbara County. Discover the burgeoning restaurant scene in Los Alamos, wine taste in Los Olivos, and sip brews in Buellton. You’ll eat, drink and be very merry at over 200 different wine tasting rooms, dozens of breweries and countless eateries.

Shop through Solvang, the mock-Danish village that lies 20 miles north of Santa Barbara, for unique treasures like wooden shoes, cuckoo clocks and specialty windmill trinkets. Stroll the streets or hop in a carriage for a horse-drawn ride through town.

Open-air adventure awaits you by way of hot air ballooning, backcountry horseback rides through the vineyards and camping in the great outdoors. So, bring your sense of adventure and a big appetite for some of the freshest food, wine and fun the Valley has to offer.
