Santa Barbara

No more than 2 hours from Los Angeles, Santa Barbara feels like you’re somewhere other than California. With its hints of Spain everywhere from the architecture to the laid-back lifestyle to the abundant flowers to the ocean just steps away, Santa Barbara will always be one of my favorite spots in California.
