Top 5 Things to Do During Your Spring Break in Santa Barbara

March 20 is the first day of spring this year, and we couldn’t be more excited for the next few months in Santa Barbara! Spring Break isn’t just for the college kids. We enjoy access to the beach and venues along Cabrillo Blvd Santa Barbara — and all the fun activities the area has to offer. From wine to music to culture, April and May bring us some of the most exciting festivals and events of the year.

What lovely weather we’re having!

A little rain can’t keep us down. Sunny days in the sixties mean prime cycling weather. With complimentary beach cruisers during your stay, you can go anywhere! The Cabrillo Blvd Santa Barbara area is pretty much yours for the taking.

1. Founding Day Festival
