Visit Santa Barbara with Lisa from We Said Go Travel


sb wheelsI loved my visit to Santa Barbara. I highly recommend eating at Kyle’s Kitchen. The burgers were great and walking distance from my hotel, The Goodland in Goleta which is part of the Kimpton Family.

Wondering what to do or where to wander?

  • Have a picnic at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in the sunken garden. It is a beautiful location and they even have movies here.
  • Along historic State Street, visit the Granada theater and see an Opera.
  • At the Painted Cabernet you can take a two hour art class with wine. An artist will lead you step by step to a fantastic painting of your own.
  • From State Street, enjoy views of the mountains and then take a short drive to walk on the beach.
  • Go to Stearn’s Wharf and explore Jellyfish and friends at Santa Barbara Sea Center
    and my favorite–take a surrey ride. Rent one from Wheel Fun and follow their map on your bicycle build for two.
  • Do you prefer to take your picnic in a rose garden? Visit the Old Mission Santa Barbara.
  • See my other videos about The Goodland Hotel and Dinner at the Outpost!
