Santa Barbara Vacations
Chill on the white sands at East Beach, enjoy seafood and drinks at Stearns Wharf, and check out the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Santa Barbara Mission -- one of the state's best -- is a must-visit site. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum are worth seeing, too. If shopping is your thing, peruse State Street's boutiques. If you want more action, go on a wine tour, surf in the ocean, golf at one of the many courses, or paraglide at Elings Park. You'll be entertained every step of the way and never far from you room, as many Santa Barbara hotels are right next to these attractions.
Festivals and Events
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival in late January/early February headlines a long list of events. The French Festival, held on Bastille Day weekend, is another popular event, as is Old Spanish Day's Fiesta in August. The Summer Solstice Celebration attracts a huge crowd, as well. If you're looking for Santa Barbara packages, these dates are sure to be filled with activities.
