First stop is a visit to the legendary Mission Santa Barbara. A mile north of downtown, this landmark pink-and-cream church dates back to the 18th century and houses a fascinating mission museum, a sacred garden and Chumash art gallery.
From here, it's a ten-minute stroll to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, while the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, off State Street downtown, is well worth an hour or two of your time.
Ranked as one of the wealthiest communities in America, and home to many celebrity faces, the Santa Barbara suburb of Montecito has a chic, small-town vibe.

Book a boutique hotel in the Santa Ynez Valley, some 30 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, and you'll be within easy reach of some of Southern California's best wineries. The area is made up of five small towns – Solvang, Buellton and Los Olivos – and there are over 100 wineries and vineyards in the lush hills, most of which offer guided tours and tastings.
