Start in Anaheim at “The Happiest Place on Earth” with Pure Disneyland Magic (April 4-7), head south for an amazing sightseeing Electric Bike Tour of San Diego (April 7-10), then make your way up the coast for a Funky Food & Photo Adventure (April 10-12) in Santa Barbara.

Enjoy an eclectic urban foodie adventure through beautiful Santa Barbara. Taste some of the best cuisine, and sip some of the finest beer and wine, in several of the city’s coolest neighborhoods.

Situated on the central California coast, sunny Santa Barbara has earned the nickname “the American Riviera” because of its similarity to the Mediterranean in terms of geography and climate. Evidence of human habitation of the Santa Barbara area goes back at least 13,000 years, and it was populated by Chumash Indians at the time of the first European explorations.

Each Santa Barbara neighborhood holds distinctive charms. For example, the Waterfront area buzzes with sightseers, restaurants and shops, while the Mesa boasts stunning beaches and open spaces. The Spanish Colonial Revival and Mission Revival styles dominate architecturally, and you’ll also see Victorian homes and cozy California bungalows. This tourist-friendly city features major attractions such as Old Mission Santa Barbara, a Franciscan mission founded in 1786; and Stearns Wharf, a harbor pier with outstanding views.
