Santa Barbara: Your Staycation Destination

Why Home Is the Best Place to Travel This Summer

There’s no place like home — especially when it’s a world-class travel destination like our hometown of Santa Barbara. In our annual Staycation issue, we look at itineraries that are affordable, doable any time of year, and absolutely local. Let your senses be your guide, as you taste wines you’ve never tried or hear Santa Barbaran sounds you haven’t heard. From traveling to tide pools to e-biking the boulevards, there are few choicer places to relax on a budget and unwind than this little corner of the world. Bon voyage!
