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.

Again, been to Santa Barbara many times but it's usually not a destination. We did the Trolley tour and got a good view of this beautiful city.

Went to Solvang on an excursion. Very nice but could have spent some time in Santa Barbara on the beach and local markets.

Nice port, even though we had to tender in. The excursion (Montecito Stars and History) was awful. We had hoped for more history and less star searching but the bus driver drove us around the Montecito hills to look at famous peoples' gates. A couple would have been fine but we did this for over an hour! After showing us some beautiful restaurants, he dropped us off at a strip mall for 40 minutes. We ended up eating sandwiches from the Von's grocery store. Oh, and the fig tree, we drove past it--didn't even get to get off the bus to take a picture. I was never so happy to return to the ship!
