What's YOUR Perfect Day in Santa Barbara, California?

Welcome to Our 2009 Santa Barbara Website!

Do you find yourself doing the same thing whenever you visit our city? Do you exit the 101, park your car and then cruise State Street? Or, do you park near Stern's Wharf and walk along the waterfront?

This is all good, but there's much more! Explore our site and find cool things to do on your next day trip or vacation to Santa Barbara. Have you visited the Old SB Mission? How about the Zoo? Ever explored the Natural History or Maritime Museums?

Our family has compiled the "best of breed" of what there is to do and see when you visit. We treat you like family and take you to the places we love! Whether you stay for an hour, half a day, or an entire weekend, you'll be our guest in this Mediterranean-like city.

Look seaward and Santa Cruz Island commands the horizon. Have you ever gone whale watching?

To the east, a patchwork of green and sandstone mountains roll gently down to the white sands of the crystal blue Pacific. Behind those mountains are the best California wineries.
