I know, I know this is last minute, but PACK YOUR BIKINI, PUT ON SUN SCREEN, SAY BYE TO YOUR PETS, AND LET’S GO TO SANTA BARBARA! Ready?
You HAVE to go to Santa Barbara by going around the freeway (known as the back way) the back way has no traffic and is filled with agriculture which means there are fruit stands you can stop by to pick up some freshly picked fruit, DELICIOUS BEEF JERKY, dried fruit, and other snacks! I sadly didn’t get a picture of the little fruit stand I stopped by. The name is Francisco’s Fruit though!
Anyway, say hello to beautiful Santa Barbara! It’s so amazing how our surroundings quickly change into an ocean view welcoming us.
I love it when the sky is gloomy. I guess you didn’t need that bikini after all! Our hotel room awaits!
The Marina Beach is the hotel to stay at if you visit. The beach is only a 3 minute walk! First you have to go through this small path
THEN you’re at the beach!
There are even free bikes to go bike riding!
This hotel is especially good for you if you like to be away from all the hustle and bustle from people. When you’re feeling like going out, State Street is where you’ll meet tourists from all over the world, eat at restaurants, have a girls night out at bars, and shop!
It’s about a 8 minute walk from our hotel to get to the shuttle that will take us down into State Street
Off to State Street we go!
Let’s stop by a few places!
We can’t forget to walk through the mall!
Most of the good places to shop at are out in the street which I didn’t get a picture of! I really like to be in the moment when I go to places rather than focusing on getting pictures.
To make my terrible picture taking skills better, awkwardly stand at the second floor of the mall and look down into all the beautiful greenery of Santa Barbara
Grab a drink with me at the James Joyce where I sung karaoke and ruined Sweet Caroline, but I had a blast which is all that matters! Thank you guy who helped me sing! Don’t forget to have a delicious Moscow Mule while you’re here! Or maybe an Irish coffee for you whiskey coffee lovers
YOU HAVE TO GO TO JOES CAFE! They have the most delicious and biggest piece of chocolate cake and you can get a traditional American lunch, dinner, or breakfast!
ONLY CRAZY PEOPLE CAN WAIT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THEIR FOOD BEFORE EATING!
Sadly, all good things must come to an end. The perfect place to say goodbye to the beach, homes, greenery, tourists from all over the world, and delicious food is by taking a walk down the pier and having dinner looking out the ocean
It might’ve only been a few seconds for you at Santa Barbara, but it was 2 memorable days for me to cherish forever. Thanks for coming on this journey with me. I wish you were here! Bbyyyeeee!
