Santa Barbara — 6 nights

The American Riviera

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara is a solid vacation destination with its wide beaches, renowned wineries, and some of California's finest shopping and dining options.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and Santa Barbara Harbor. Do some cultural sightseeing at Wine Tours & Tastings and Old Mission Santa Barbara. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Barbara: Commemorative Air Force Southern California Wing Museum (in Camarillo) and Conejo Valley Botanic Garden (in Thousand Oaks). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Santa Barbara County Courthouse, get a new perspective on nature at Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, enjoy the sand and surf at Butterfly Beach, and engage your brain at MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation.
