Santa Barbara Destination Weddings

Keep the celebration going all weekend long

The list of things to do for your destination wedding in Santa Barbara is endless. From postcard-perfect beaches, chic boutique shopping, award-winning wineries and stunning hiking trails, your guests are sure to cherish this memorable occasion. We’ve put together our Santa Barbara shortlist to help get the party started.

  • Sail into the sunset: Think the views from our rooftop are amazing? Check out the views of the American Riviera from the water aboard a 50-foot sailing catamaran. Book a sunset cruise with Santa Barbara Sailing Center and be sure to check out their Sipping on the Sea series which serves up local wine or brewery tastings onboard every third Thursday of each month.
  • Get outdoors: We all know Santa Barbara has miles of beautiful beaches but there’s more recreation to be found. Hidden gems abound in the great outdoors from incredible hikes like Inspiration Point (5.3 miles from the hotel), to both entry-level and serious mountain biking trails. Consider Cal Coast Adventures for all your biking, surfing and paddle boarding needs.
  • Swing by this view: Golf is always a good idea, but Sandpiper Golf Club (12.5 miles from the hotel) has the most breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the mountains and is a championship Top 100 Golf Course in the United States.
  • Why not wine: We’re incredibly lucky to be only steps away from some of the most engaging tasting rooms of premier Santa Barbara county wines, while also being one mile from the popular and fun Funk Zone and just a 40-minute drive to the Santa Ynez wine country. Take advantage with these quick tips to get you started:
    • Consider tours by Coastal Concierge, a premier wine tour company with access to private wineries and varietals of your choosing
    • Local partners like Grassini Family Wines, Jamie Slone Wines, Cebada Wines and Happy Canyon Wines are just a short walk from the Wine Collection of El Paseo
    • Get the full Santa Barbara American Riviera wine experience by considering a ride to Los Olivos, and visit our friends at Carhartt Vineyard – the smallest tasting room with the biggest charm, making wine from ground to glass by hand with heart for three generations
  • Find your zen: Visit our partners at FLOAT Spa for a signature FLOAT massage or a relaxing and healing sea stone massage. FLOAT is Santa Barbara’s spot where you go to de-stress, get away, find balance and feel light. Float is a five-minute walk from Kimpton Canary, or indulge in in-room spa services which they provide as well.

After each day is done, plan to reconvene over a glass of local wine at our nightly hosted social hour, or unwind near the fireplace on our rooftop terrace.
