Santa Barbara, California
Reviews > North America > United States > Santa Barbara > Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, which is a halfway point between San Francisco and Los Angeles is easily the most gorgeous and I've ever been to by far. Nicknamed the "American Riviera" because of it's extremely beautiful scenery, wonderful beaches, enjoyable climate and pleasant mountains which corner the resort, it is obviously a top destination that everyone should see.
I adored the place and still adore it, it's very unique, since the architecture dates to from Spanish colonization. The fact that the area itself is very wealthy also means that unfortunately it is very expensive at the same time. Nevertheless, Santa Barbara offers you a lot, owning many famous and renowned bars, clothing stores, restaurants and more at State Street.
The best part of it, however, is the beach, it's just fascinating as it gets, totally enjoyed it to the fullest.
