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.
Take a break from the city and head to Carpinteria State Beach and Arroyo Burro County Beach Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cold Spring Tavern and Wine Tours & Tastings. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Santa Barbara: Ostrich Land (in Buellton), Ventura (Ventura to Ojai Paved Bike Path & Serra Cross Park) and Santa Ynez (Santa Ynez Valley & Sunstone Vineyards & Winery). There's much more to do: trek along Cabrillo Bike Path, don't miss a visit to Old Mission Santa Barbara, see the interesting displays at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, and admire the architecture and history at Old Mission Santa Ines.

To see where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Santa Barbara day trip planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 72°F in November, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
