Why It's Worth It

About a hundred miles north of the City of Angels you’ll find Santa Barbara, a seemingly magical place where the hills melt into the Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara’s casual beach scene blends effortlessly with artist enclaves and street art, taco stands and fine dining, and urban wineries and tasting rooms. Welcome to the American Riviera. —Susan Barnes
