I always take a yearly trip here. It is a great, and relaxing town. I enjoy being by the beach, so I always book an inn where I am in walking distance. Great seafood. Locals who live her are friendly, and the views from various hiking spots are amazing.
Santa Barbara is a quiet retreat for Angelinos - its Spanish mission style and unsoiled beaches are a sight to behold, and its main drag boasts a host of high end restaurants. But it's also a university town, infusing the city with energy and making sure there are plenty of cheap eats and dive bars to be found.
Santa Barbara is one the must visit city in California. Nice beaches, lots of shops and restaurants to go to.
Met this throw-back to the 60's along the beachfront in Santa Barbara with his unique van. Great guy! B v
