There are endless things to do in Santa Barbara including dozens of hikes, beaches, and activities. While there are many more that I haven’t included, these are my favorite and most highly recommended by others!
Just 50 miles North of Santa Barbara is Figueroa Mountain in Santa Ynez which is currently blooming with Poppies and Wild Lupine– about an hour and a half drive from Santa Barbara.
Looking for the perfect Instagram spot, locations for engagement shoots, or just a nice place to take photos? Here are my favorite spots that I’ve been and the spots at the top of my list to go to on a future trip!
I’ve been visiting Santa Barbara my entire life, I lived here for 4 years during college, and now my parents own a condo here. So I consider myself a bit of a local now and it is one of my favorite places in the world!
I have eaten at most of the restaurants around Santa Barbara…
A wonderful event full of girl bosses sponsored by Danielle Gibson Events. This year it was in beautiful Sonoma, California at K2 Ranch! There was gorgeous decor, lovely speakers, delicious food & drinks, and positive vibes all around.
After almost 2 years of living in San Diego, I finally took a trip to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden. It was full of lush (very photogenic) plants, flowers, and ponds. I can't possibly explain how amazing this place was, so take a look for yourself! Scroll to the bottom for the best part of the gardens.
