Santa Barbara

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,

Homemade tacos at Corazon's weekend pop-up,

Ethiopian at Le Petit Valentien,

And raw, vegan healthy at Kotuku Elixir Bar,

I have had the privilege of experiencing this quaint village on foot,

by bicycle,

by day,

and at night.

What I have discovered is an array of eclectic shops, delicious eateries

And wonderful cobblestone streets along hidden passageways.

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.
