Must See & Do in Santa Barbara

The City

Despite its proximity to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara couldn’t be more different! Notable for its wide beaches, highly rated wineries and the Spanish colonial architecture that dominates most of the city, the ‘Riviera of the West’ is the perfect place to wind down from the hustle and bustle of L.A. The surrounding mountains and water sports make it a very popular destination among nature lovers, whereas the thriving food scene - highly influenced by the city’s large Latino population - and varied cultural events ensure foodies and culture vultures don’t feel cast aside.

Top things to see
    Santa Barbara Mission This historical complex is a superb example of California's Mission architecture. Hiking Due to its privileged location, Santa Barbara offers hikes of any length and difficulty. Just pick one you like! Santa Barbara County Courthouse Don’t miss the stunning Mural Room and the impressive views from the top of the clock tower. Surfing You’ll find plenty of surfing spots in Santa Barbara, and if you’re a beginner there’s plenty of schools to teach you! Stearns Wharf The place to be as the sun sets over the Pacific, this picturesque wharf is always teeming with life.

La Super-Rica Taqueria
This modest Californian-Mexican restaurant doesn’t leave anyone indifferent. The lines can be long, but the food is well worth it!


The Funk Zone
Santa Barbara’s hip district is the sort of place you go for brunch and don’t leave until after dinner. Converted warehouses and buildings decorated with graffiti murals now house a number of boutiques, tasting rooms, cafes, galleries, and shops. Good vibes only!
