"A city so sophisticated it hurts. The fact that it's so close to Los Angeles, home to all that is crass and wacky about American life, only adds to its poignancy. On the southern Californian coast, it is suspended in permanent summer, like some rare orchid in preserving fluid. Its Spanish colonial architecture consists of arched facades, muted plaster exteriors and trellised courtyards. Its citizens - modest, unassuming, well spoken - confound every American cliché." Stanley Stewart, Sunday Times UK
A key destination on the "California Hwy 1 Road Trip," Santa Barbara was the original Hollywood in the glamorous twenties and is still a favorite of movie producers and home to numerous celebrities. Today, visitors can play on the beach, bike Stearns Wharf, sip their way through the Urban Wine Trail, shop some of the most talked about boutiques in downtown Santa Barbara; or step back in time at the Old Santa Barbara Mission or the Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park.
At night, enjoy numerous restaurants that celebrate the bounty of California, dance the night away, sway to a concert at the renowned Santa Barbara Bowl or watch a theatrical performance at the recently restored Granada Theatre before tucking into bed at one of the many Santa Barbara hotel and accommodation options that range from beautiful budget to 5-star luxury hotels.
