Santa Barbara is located in the southern part of California, less than 100 miles north of Los Angeles. This laidback city on the Pacific Ocean is a wonderland of green parks and colorful, flower-filled gardens like Alameda and the Mission Rose Garden, harbor-side seafood restaurants, peaceful beaches and marine museums. Mild weather and varied activities attract the rich and famous who own houses that cluster on the hills surrounding this spectacular place, and yachts that dance to the tune of the seaside breeze. But, the main course on the menu here is rest and relaxation.
If you love nature and wildlife, whale-watching tours take you out into the Pacific to cruise areas that are filled with aquatic life. Over 30 different species of whale reside in the Santa Barbara channel, giving you a great assortment of magnificent creatures to witness. From orcas to blue whales, you'll see the largest mammals on earth in their natural home. Schools of dolphins sometimes frolic alongside the boats as well.
Boat tours are not limited to whale watching since Santa Barbara is also a gorgeous, romantic town. If you're on a weekend getaway with your significant other, climb aboard a variety of nighttime boat rides for a dinner-and-wine experience out on the waves.
