La Arcada on State

Public Market; picnic
at the Mission
CLOCKWISE

Bougainvillea twining across red-

tile rooftops, birdsong mingling with the
ocean breeze, islands and whale spouts on
the horizon-Santa Barbara's charms tempt
at every turn. Perfect getaways don't get
much more perfect.
Take it from the movie stars who sneak
away to Santa Barbara all the time-or just
straight up move here. Oprah, Brad, Ellen
and other first-name's-enough A-listers have
estates here, many tucked away in the coastal enclave of Montecito. Why not? There's
that legendary Old World beauty that befits
the city's nickname, "The American Riviera."
But Santa Barbara has a new energy
too-leafy streets lined with trendy boutiques, a buzz-worthy food and wine scene,
and a waterfront teeming with sailboats,
kayaks, and stand-up paddleboarders.

MISSION TO TOWN TO SEA

W

hen it comes to exploring,
start at the top. Old Mission
Santa Barbara, built by Spanish
Franciscans in 1786 and nicknamed Queen
of the Missions, perches above the town,
fronted by a glorious swath of lawn that
practically screams "picnic!" No wonder
world-class plein-air painters like Jeremy

central-coast
the elegant mission towers. "I could spend my life right
here-painting the architecture, the agave
in bloom, the colors of the mountains."
Head down to town on aptly named
Garden Street, past charming California
bungalows and adobe cottages, to the main
drag of State Street. The usual tempting shops
(Anthropologie, L'Occitane) are all here or
nearby, but so are one-of-a-kind boutiques
and galleries. Relax by a picture window
at Jeannine's, the place for chai lattes and
fresh scones, to plot your shopping route
to local favorites like Wendy Foster (casual
elegance) and Fuzion (amazing art glass).

FOUR SEASONS RESORT THE
BILTMORE This 22-acre ocean-

front grand-dame, opened in 1927,
mixes Old Hollywood elegance
with laid-back friendliness. Keep
your eyes peeled for dolphins
from the restaurant terrace.

hillside compound of exclusive
