Steps From The Best of Santa Barbara

Some destinations are just blessed with the best of everything, and the list of things to do in Santa Barbara is seemingly endless. Home to a collection of unique neighborhoods with their own personalities and treasures to discover — like the Funk Zone, where you’ll find the tasting rooms of the Urban Wine Trail — you’ll find one-of-a-kind boutiques and cafes along with see-worthy landmarks like the Old Mission Santa Barbara, County Courthouse, and El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park. Don’t miss The Waterfront District’s popular attractions like the Cabrillo Bikeway and beyond, Santa Barbara's wide sandy beaches. And when you stay at Kimpton Canary, a favorite among luxury hotels in Santa Barbara, you’re just two blocks from the Wine Collection of El Paseo and a cork’s throw from Santa Barbara wine country, where the perfect Pinot is waiting to be sipped.
