It is nearly impossible to vacation in California and not venture out to one of the seemingly endless pristine beaches. There is no better way to soak up the sun than to get in the water and surf in Santa Barbara, one of the surfing capitals of the West Coast. Head to Rincon Point, the "Queen of the Coast," to enjoy perfect waves along this half mile stretch of coastline. Expert surfers will want to also try out Sandspit, which features heavy backwash and long tubes. More of a beginner? Try out Leadbetter Point or Campus Point instead. Or even better, take lessons as a group and have some friendly competition with who can stay on the surfboard the longest. The loser buys a round of drinks!
As the name implies, the Funk Zone is a funky downtown warehouse district that offers a wide variety of things to do. Wander through art galleries and shops, eat at some delicious restaurants, and hit up some amazing wineries and breweries. For those that love craft brews, the Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company has rotating specialty beers on tap and flight options if you want to try them all. Best of all, the Funk Zone is close to the beach!
Bring your clubs on vacation with you and enjoy a round along some of the most beautiful golf courses you will find anywhere! There are plenty of courses to choose from, all within a short distance from each other. Rancho San Marcos is located within the Santa Ynez Mountains and this well-maintained course gives you a taste of nature. Glen Annie Golf Club has lake and waterfall features along with amazing views of the Channel Islands. This course is also pretty forgiving, so if you indulge in the craft beer cart you won't be punished! Lastly, Sandpiper Golf Club has been named one of the Top 100 Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest, and is situated on an ocean bluff, giving you water views along every hole. No matter which course you choose, you and the guys are sure to have a blast!
No matter if you prefer ocean waves, golf courses, or fine dining, Santa Barbara offers nearly everything you could ask for the perfect weekend Santa Barbara getaway with the guys. Plan your vacation today!
