If you are looking for the perfect summer getaway this year, look no further than beautiful Santa Barbara. Our California home is a great place to visit any time of year, but summer in Santa Barbara is truly special. A visit during the start of summer lets you enjoy cool temperatures, plenty of outdoor and indoor activities, and avoid the bigger crowds of late summer. Take a look at some of our favorite early summer activities in Santa Barbara this year:

Get Out Your Cruiser

When you visit Santa Barbara, you will immediately notice how many locals take advantage of the friendly streets. Visitors and locals alike are able to bike all around Santa Barbara for a relaxing ride. Several bike paths, such as Cabrillo Bike Path found around the waterfront, lead to beautiful beaches with incredible views. Take in the crisp ocean air as you casually explore the city. For more adventurous riding, you can head out to the mountain trails just outside the city. Grab a mountain bike and ride along these shared trails. The best place for you to grab a bike in town for a short rental is Wheel Fun, the largest bike shop in all of California. This local rental shop features everything you need to properly hit the biking trails.

Visit the Santa Barbara Zoo

Make sure to stop by the Santa Barbara Zoo to visit some incredible exotic animals. The Santa Barbara Zoo has been a staple of the community for years. They currently house many beautiful creatures such as leopards, anteaters, flamingos, gorillas, lions, and so much more. You can easily view each animal in its spacious habitats. The Santa Barbara Zoo will be opened at a limited capacity with reservations made in advance. If you are visiting in early June your children can join their Summer Zoo Camp where they can enjoy interactive science exhibits, guided tours, and even get close-up encounters with some of the animals!

Take a Kayaking Tour

Santa Barbara has many incredible spots where you can casually kayak around the shore. Adventure lovers will want something more thrilling to satisfy their trip such as a visit to Prisoners Harbor. Don’t let the name fool you as this area is one of the most beautiful areas to visit. Take a kayak tour with Santa Barbara Adventure Company where you will be guided to the area found just north of Santa Cruz Island. All tours will take you to your destination and provide you with all the gear you need. Make sure to check out their other tour offerings such as rock climbing and wine tasting tours!

Speaking of Wine….

Now that we have your attention, you will want to explore the many wineries found around Santa Barbara. The early summer season is a great time to visit so you can enjoy these wineries outdoor, especially as some restrictions are still in place. Local wineries such as Santa Barbara Winery and Jamie Slone Wines are local favorites and offer tasting flights to try a little of everything. Enjoy other wines by the glass or pick up a bottle or two to take back to your vacation rental. Some of these wineries also have open spaces that can allow a friendly pup to join you on the festivities.

Grab McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream

Nothing screams summer quite like picking up a cool treat such as ice cream. Santa Barbara is the home of McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream, a locally owned shop that has been around since the 1940s. You can grab a cone or bowl of your favorite ice cream that is made in-house at either of their two locations. Enjoying your ice cream in the shops may still be limited this summer but you can easily do a walk-up order and enjoy your treat as you walk around the city.

Visit Stearns Wharf

Knock out all of your shopping and dining needs by stopping at Stearns Wharf during your visit. This local pier has been open since 1872, making it one of the city’s oldest landmarks. While it has seen several renovations over the years, it continues to host a variety of unique shops and restaurants. Browse the locally owned stores or stop in for a delicious meal with oceanside views. Plan your visit accordingly, as many of the restaurants will have limited seating available. Keep an eye out for the beautiful Spanish and Mediterranean-style architecture at Stearns Wharf!

Vacation is a great moment to relax, unwind, and restore the mind and body after a year dedicated to hard work. With fall just around the corner, many travelers are considering destinations that bring the best of outdoor beauty and fun to life. When you’re hoping for the best of the best that comes complete with a side of California style, there’s no place better to venture this fall than Santa Barbara. Here are just a few of the many options available to enjoy during your Santa Barbara getaway:

Take a Fall Foliage Hike

It’s easy to get swept up in the idea that California is an exclusively sunny and summer-oriented destination. Fortunately, those that set their travel sights on scenic Santa Barbara in the fall will find that the color changes that apply to much of the continental U.S. in the autumn also apply to this delightful destination. For those that are excited to get out and immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, there are plenty of options for savoring the sight of changing leaves when you focus on the surrounding Los Padres National Forest. Enjoying a maze of trails that vary according to length and difficulty, those with a passion for hiking can customize their fall foliage adventure through the wilderness according to preference and ability. Cottonwood and Sycamore trees that line many of these routes are known for bursting into color by late October and early November, making for a very memorable trek that’s worth carrying your camera for. Inspiration Point, in particular, is a great choice for those that enjoy the idea of a reward in the form of sweeping views of Santa Barbara from above.

Bike Your Way to Fall Fun

Mild temperatures and fewer crowds make fall a fantastic time to plan a getaway to Santa Barbara and an even better time to make sure that biking is on your list of must-do activities. As the pathways clear out of visitors, an opportunity opens up to ride some of the more popular routes and enjoy the views and fun with ease. One of these exciting options is the Cabrillo Bike Path that leads to Butterfly Beach. Offering up 4.5 miles of paved pathway to explore, the Cabrillo Bike Path is packed in the summer but provides more space to make for a leisurely afternoon of peddling through town during the fall. Ocean views are yours for the savoring along the way with the added reward of time spent at the beach when you reach the end of the road. Take pictures, enjoy great company, and indulge in time outdoors when you bike this path during your autumn escape.

Sail in Santa Barbara Style

Getting out on the water is a highlight of most trips to Santa Barbara and a fall getaway this direction is no exception to the rule. Those that can’t get enough of time spent savoring the waves will find that renting a boat or signing up for a private sailing lesson might just be the best part of the voyage. Consider partnering with the team at the Santa Barbara Sailing Center when you’re in the market to focus your autumn fun on the water. Located at the Santa Barbara Harbor just next to the launch ramp, this company is a premier provider of all things water-based fun and provides options for on-the-water instruction as well as a lineup of rentals for those more inclined towards independent adventures. From sailboats and powerboats to kayaks and paddleboards, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to enjoying a customized day enjoying the water and taking in the shoreline view from a one of a kind vantage point.

Picnic at the Mission Rose Garden

There’s nothing better than satisfying your taste buds in an open-air setting that’s as colorful and captivating as it is welcoming. Those looking to incorporate a fun outdoor picnic to their autumn Santa Barbara adventure will want to make their way to the Mission Rose Garden at least once while they’re in town. Home to over 1,500 varieties of roses, this garden is an icon of beauty within the city and a great place to settle down and admire the view while savoring some great flavors too. Sitting across from the Santa Barbara Mission, the Rose Garden offers up a space where it’s possible to indulge in tranquility while still remaining close to the heart of the city’s pulse.

Plan a Downtown Architecture Walking Tour

Santa Barbara is known and loved for its impressive Spanish-influenced architecture, but there’s no reason to book a tour during your fall getaway when you can plan one yourself through downtown. Beginning at City Hall, make your way towards the La Placita buildings dating back to the 19th century before continuing on to admire the Lobero Theater rooted in 1924 as well as the Santa Barbara recreation center dating back to 1912.

They may not be as well-known as Napa or Sonoma, but the vineyards here are still friendly and the tours are welcoming. Taking a tour of a vineyard is an experience like no other, as you truly see the journey of the wine from grape to bottle, and can taste the wine while overviewing the beautiful land in which it grew.
