Who needs a reason to take a spontaneous vacation? You do! Whether that’s a 50-mile or 500-mile journey, here’s the proof you need to spontaneously plan a trip to Santa Barbara.
Even with that traffic, you can’t be mad.
Because you’re headed straight to the beach.

And you’ve got a killer sunset to look forward to tonight.
Not to mention: a gorgeous sunrise tomorrow, if you’re up in time.
You don’t even have to bother with driving yourself.
Grab the shuttle to the waterfront downtown.
Explore all the boutiques and tchotchkes, wine cellars and vintage reds, and take a bike along (or all the way there) if you need one.
And it’s not just natural beauty, but architecture and culture too.
The Mission is its own destination.
And the food. Goodness help us if we aren’t craving some tacos right now.
We’ll do the healthy thing in the morning when we get to the Santa Barbara Farmers’ Market.
Then maybe go for a little swim, take a nap, and try to decide whether or not to stay for one more day.
