Incredibly pretty! Not a ton of excursions here but since I’m from the area I knew of things to do. There’s good food and a nice atmosphere. Great day

Beautiful, must see city. We took free shuttle, then walked to transit center and boarded a city bus and rode around the neighborhoods. Don't need to buy an expensive excursion in Santa Barbara to enjoy its beauty.
