Santa Barbara is a lovely coastal town with a year round temperature of 70 give or take a few degrees. It has been dubbed The American Rivera for its similarity to such European cities as St. Tropez and Monaco.SB has winding hills,
Palm-lined beach fronts
And exquisite cuisine. California fare at Alchemy Spa Cafe,
Fresh pasta and noodles at the Santa Barbara Public Market,
Corazon's weekend pop-up,
Ethiopian at Le Petit Valentien,
Kotuku Elixir Bar,
and at night.
For a taste of La Dolce Vita on U.S. soil, Santa Barabara can't be beat and; I recommend a weekend visit or prolonged stay if you have the time, to soak up the beneficent rays of this saintly town nestled in mountains and framed by the sea.
