I can't believe I waited this long to visit Santa Barbara. It's a beautiful beach town. and is the perfect place to be when you need some much needed R&R. Who doesn't love walking along the beach, riding bikes downtown for good food and retail, and lounging poolside- ipad and vino in hand? I stayed at the charming Oceana Hotel, which made me feel like I was in some kind of summer home dreamland styled by the visual director of Anthropologie. It was heaven. So yes, Santa Barbara is pretty much da bomb, and if you won't take my word for it, then take Oprah's- she lives there, so it must be good!
