Sunny Santa Barbara

Beach or mountains?

With Santa Barbara you don’t have to choose.

We recently traveled out West to California to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. After throwing around a million ideas, we settled on the beautiful town of Santa Barbara. With the temps in the mid 60s to 70s, we couldn’t stop talking about the weather the entire trip. The views were breathtaking; mountains in the backdrop, beach at your toes, palm trees up above. We stayed in Montecito, which was our favorite town to walk around, shop and dine. We rode bikes along the beach into The Funk Zone for wine tasting. The boys played golf every day, the girls explored (and took photo after photo of all the Spanish inspired décor). I have this thing with floors, colorful tiled floors to be exact, and SB takes the cake. There were so many cute shops, restaurants, and wineries galore, that even with 3 full days, we didn’t have enough time to do everything. Plus when I am able to escape the office for a few days, I do try to catch some RNR. This trip, the pool was calling my name and with a good read in hand (currently Zero to One), I decided to squeeze in some time to catch those Cali rays!  

Below I’ve listed our favorite eats, boutiques, and must-dos for your next trip to SB.
