Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands

Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands

Santa Barbara, CA has a lot to offer to its visitors. From a 200+-year old beautiful mission to its access to Channel Islands N.P. and not to forget the sandy beaches and a very cute a live downtown with very good restaurants, there is something to enjoy for everybody. In the gallery below, you will see that on the boat ride to Channel Islands we had friendly travelers, as many dolphins and orcas decided to play in the waves created by the boat. On the island, we got to see some gray foxes. Back in the city, the seeing mission at sunrise is really worth getting up for. Later in the day, you can stroll down the streets and stop at the farmers market. As it is Southern California, you can get very tasty tomatoes till late November.
