Ballard Vacation Packages

From Ballard, it's 30 miles southeast to the center of Santa Barbara.

Stretch out those weary muscles and go for a relaxing walk by the water. Silver Strand Beach, 60 miles to the southeast, and McGrath State Beach, 55 miles to the southeast, are both great options.

Take some time to discover the sights and sounds of this region's environmental reserves. Two nearby locations are La Purisima Mission State Historic Park (18 miles away) and Andree Clark Bird Refuge (30 miles away).

Explore the local environment at Hans Christian Andersen Park, a local natural area.

Although you may be only visiting for the day, it's highly recommended that you see Buttonwood Farm Winery & Vineyard and Lincourt Vineyards.

Want to check out Gainey Vineyard and Bridlewood Winery? They're located in Solvang, some 2 miles from Ballard. If you'd like to experience even more of this part of the world, go to Santa Ynez Valley and swing by Hans Christian Andersen Museum and Elverhoj Museum of History and Art. They sit 2 miles out of Ballard.

The regional center of Buellton, just 5 miles west from Ballard, is where all the action is. It has many tourist attractions worth making the distance for, such as River Course at the Alisal, Solvang Brewing Company and Wildling Museum. OstrichLand USA and Nojoqui Falls Park are some more places if you're not short on time.

This place offers plenty of outdoor activities that are great ways to unwind. An afternoon spent cycling or beach combing is sure to clear your mind.

While making your way through Central Coast California, try something that you'll remember for years to come. Paragliding through the clouds is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Have a break from sightseeing and spend some time on the water swimming or scuba diving.

Santa Barbara Municipal Airport is the handiest airport at roughly 20 miles to the southeast, so make sure you get there well before your boarding time.
