The beautiful town of Santa Barbara is located about 100 miles north of Los Angeles. It’s nicknamed the American Riviera because of its gorgeous coastal setting and charming Mediterranean-style buildings with red-tile roofs. You’ll find tons of fun things to do in Santa Barbara. You can spend the day sunbathing on the town’s lovely beaches, or you can go for a bike ride down a path the parallels the beach. When you need a break from the sun, head to the Funk Zone, a trendy, artistic area located between Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean. Here, you’ll find tons of converted warehouses, galleries, locally-owned restaurants, and unique murals and graffiti. If you want to learn more about Santa Barbara’s history, head to the Presidio neighborhood, home to the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.
