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.
