Santa Barbara, CA
Set against the dramatic backdrop of the sparkling ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara is a palm-tree embroidered Californian gem. Lovingly nicknamed the American Riviera, the white sand beaches, Botanic Gardens and historic Stearns Wharf are all perfect strolling spots. Visit the Mission, dating back to 1820. Boasting seemingly non-stop sunshine, you’ll love how the sleepy sea-town feel combines with the vibrancy, art and culture of an infinitely larger city.
