Santa Barbara Area – Part 3 – Santa Barbara, California

I enjoyed visiting Santa Barbara. The city is for beach lovers, history buffs, shopping addicts, foodies – there is something to see and do for every one. I feel at home near the ocean and maybe part of the appeal comes from spending time as a child on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Stern’s Wharf seemed to be the jumping off point for us while in Santa Barbara. One day we walked around the wharf and then took the shuttle from the Wharf into the downtown area of the city. I wanted to visit the Santa Barbara Courthouse and go up to the Tower that offers a 360 degree view of Santa Barbara. The Public Library was in this area as well as some great churches, like Lady of Sorrows (the architecture of these churches was amazing). We stopped for lunch at Santa Barbara Brewing Company – I had the best fish tacos and the fish was not breaded – love, love, love. I was in fish taco heaven.

On another day we started off at the Wharf for a bike ride. We stopped at the Marina to take a look around and get a morning cocktail. The weather started off foggy and then turned into a beautiful, warm day.

We visited the Santa Barbara Mission and for a small fee toured the Mission. The gardens had great design and were well maintained. The inside of the church was colorful and beautiful – this is the most colorful church I have been in. I enjoyed learning of the Mission’s past and present history.
