Whether you want to shop in State Street or wander through the many museums, there is no doubt you’ll pitch up on the pristine sands of the coast at some point during your stay. Make a splash with a host of watersports, perfect your serve on one of the volleyball courts, learn how to surf or simply soak up the sun with a good book… your ideal beach adventure awaits.
Prefer an afternoon on the fairways over getting wet ‘n wild in the ocean? Then you’re in luck as the region offers a multitude of golf courses, ideal for leisure as well as business meets. Practise your swing and attempt to lower your handicap while enjoying the picturesque vistas which are almost guaranteed with every course.
Rather a more relaxing stay in Santa Barbara? Then take a tour of one of the vineyards and wineries which are in abundance here. Sample some of the greatest wines in the world, before making the difficult decision of which ones to add to your cellar back home.
Now you’re aware of Santa Barbara’s name in the wine world, expect extensive vino and cocktail lists at all its restaurants, alongside menus of tantalising dishes. A whole host of cuisine can be found in the region, with exquisite and freshly-caught seafood fused with local ingredients a popular choice throughout.
