"One of the most gorgeous cities that you could visit"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 01-Nov-2013
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

Santa Barbara to me is one of the most gorgeous cities that you could visit. There is such a diversity in both scenery and activities! You can shop for miles down State Street or enjoy delicious seafood on the Pier. They have hiking trails, parks for family gatherings and volleyball nets ready to go on the beach. For couples there are vineyards and wineries to explore and for anyone with children you will have to take them to Kidsworld. Every time I go there I feel like I've stepped back into history with the beautiful Spanish architecture that surround you. If your a history buff like myself you will also enjoy the Goleta Depot Railway Museum and many other treasures that have been preserved from the early American Frontier. Santa Barbara is truly my home away from home!
