Oh Santa Barbara, you have stolen my heart. I had such a small taste of the city, and I’ve never wanted to go back to a place more.
First stop: Old Mission Santa Barbara.
The drive up to the mission is absolutely stunning, and once you get there, it only gets better.
Second stop: Spanish Garden Inn.
This place couldn’t be any more adorable, warm, and inviting. It’s ranked #1 on Trip Advisor, and it is most deserving.
Upon my arrival, I was pleasantly surprised to find this lovely refreshment station set up. I helped myself to some raspberry lemonade and made my way to my room, which was right off the main courtyard.
I spent the afternoon reading a book by the pool and relaxing before dinner. There are no words to describe the loveliness of this hotel. Just go and see for yourself!
Next up: Dinner in Santa Barbara.
