SB / LA
Outside of the welcome party and the wedding, we hope you have time to explore while you are here. Below are just a few suggestions to help you out.
The city’s famed Urban Wine Trail encompasses more than 20 tasting rooms and stretches across two distinct downtown neighborhoods, each offering its own unique wine and dining. The Funk Zone is one of these neighborhoods, and this eclectic enclave that borders the beach is home to most of the Urban Wine Trail’s tasting rooms, all of which have their roots in the sprawling valley just on the other side of the Santa Ynez mountains. Along with the tasting rooms, there are more than a dozen art galleries and studios here.
Historic State Street Plaza in Downtown Santa Barbara is one of America’s most pedestrian-friendly downtowns, in large part due to the amazing diversity of shopping, restaurants and bars all along a centrally located strip.
The food in Santa Barbara is nothing short of top notch. We have our favorites (shout out to The Lark, Santa Barbara Public Market, and on and on) but there is no shortage of good eats to find. This food guide should get you started.
There is also SB's pier, Stearns Warf, a world class zoo, and amazing hiking/outdoor activities. Take your pick.
