We should always celebrate our mothers throughout the year but it is especially true when we plan for Mother’s Day. This annual holiday is the perfect time to spoil your mother with a gifted vacation to Santa Barbara. Our California home has everything that she could want for a memorable vacation getaway. Take a look at how your mother’s gifted vacation to Santa Barbara can look for her this Mother’s Day:
Your mother can start her memorable Santa Barbara Mother’s Day getaway by escaping off to the spa for the day here in Santa Barbara. The city features a variety of different spa studios that have been around for years. Start off with Le Reve Spa Santa Barbara. This local spa has been in service for over 20 years and continues to be a local favorite. Le Reve is the first and only green certified spa in the city. The finest organic products are used in all services. Your mother can enjoy regular services such as massages, facials, sunless tanning, and more. Each of the therapists is certified and will offer the highest quality of service. La Reve also features nail services too such as manicures and pedicures. Another great trendy option here in Santa Barbara is Float Luxury Spa. As the name suggests, Float Luxury Spa focuses on float therapy where you will be suspended in a pod of water devoid of sound and distractions. They also offer regular services too including body treatments, facials, massages, and more. You simply cannot go wrong with a day at the spa to feel completely rejuvenated!
Hitting the spa is just the start of a fabulous Mother’s Day stay here in Santa Barbara. Make sure to gift your mother a dining experience like no other at one of the many fine dining establishments in town. The Lark Santa Barbara is a local favorite for New American cuisine inside the polished urban eater. Some popular items on the menu include west coast oysters and seasonal entrees that use locally sourced ingredients. Each menu item is shared family style so everyone can share a little bit of everything. Another great option is Bouchon Santa Barbara, a fine dining restaurant that focuses on Californian French cuisine that uses organic farm fresh ingredients. Local wines are paired with the menu for the whole experience. There is no better place to pair locally-made wine with farm-to-table entrees. Of course, many of these places may be busy for holidays such as Mother’s Day so plan for your reservation in advance!
If your mother loves historical buildings and art there is no better place than Santa Barbara. She can enjoy a visit to the Santa Barbara County Courthouse and Old Mission Santa Barbara 1786 to see incredible architecture in person. These gorgeous buildings continue to draw in thousands of visitors each year and will be a highlight of your Santa Barbara Mother’s Day trip. The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is a great attraction that highlights the connection between indoor and outdoor attractions. Stearns Wharf is one of the most popular historical landmarks in the city and deserves a visit. It is still in operation to this day with many local restaurants and boutique shops available to enjoy. The views from the wharf are incredible and highlight the exciting coastline of Santa Barbara.
One of the benefits of visiting Santa Barbara is having a near-endless variety of wineries and wine-tasting rooms nearby. You can take your mother out for a wine-tasting adventure by visiting several of these stops. Make it easy for you two to enjoy your trip by booking a wine-tasting tour through Captain Jack’s Santa Barbara Tours.
