Santa Barbara’s Stearns Wharf & Coastline


A little delayed, but here are the last pictures from our weekend in Santa Barbara!

There's no better way to start the day than with fried green tomatoes.

One of my favorite moments from our weekend was bicycling by the beach, so simple, yet so much fun!

I was so busy looking at all the paintings, jewelry, and lawn furniture by the water near the Funk Zone I nearly forgot to take pictures. I'm pretty sure this was the most popular stand though!

I had a tough time pulling myself away from Santa Barbara, but looking forward to a pit stop for Hefs & margherita pizza at Firestone on the drive home definitely helped!

Beautiful Downtown Santa Barbara


Santa Barbara is officially one of my favorite places in California! It was pretty tough leaving after just a day and a half…

State and Fig came so highly recommended we had to stop there for brunch our 1st morning, and I can't rave about it enough! Click on this pic for my Yelp review

It's a little corny, but one of the cutest things about La Arcada and downtown Santa Barbara were all the statues of little critters

We decided to wander around downtown and look for dinner when our Airbnb hosts' recommendations ended up being too busy, and ended up trying Brazilian food for the 1st time. In short: big success! This pic is linked to my Yelp review too.
