“Hello everyone!  It’s Cassie again from Simply Classy blog.  I’m currently living in L.A. & I love taking day trips whenever I can to get a little escape from the city.  Santa Barbara is hands down one of my favorite day trips from L.A. to take!  If you’re ever in L.A. or the SoCal area, I highly recommend visiting.  The drive is beautiful and only around 1.5 – 2 hours from the city.  Whenever I first arrive to Santa Barbara I love to go walking around State Street.  It’s one of the main streets in downtown Santa Barbara and they have so many amazing shops, cafes and restaurants.  I love to go shopping and find somewhere new to eat every time.  You could honestly spend the whole day on State Street.  My favorite place to shop there is Paseo Nuevo.  It’s a huge outdoor shopping area with gorgeous fountains, artwork and staircases!  Off of State Street there is so many fun alleyways with colorful walls that are definitely Instagram worthy too!  Once I’ve eaten and shopped, I usually take the trolley from downtown Santa Barbara to the beach.  It’s only about a 10 minute trolley ride. Once you’ve enjoyed the gorgeous views that the Santa Barbara coast has to offer you can head to the Chromatic Gate. The Chromatic Gate is just across the street from the beach & a must see if you’re in the city. It’s huge in real life and so much fun to see!  Me and my daughter played hide and seek there for almost a half an hour before continuing our walk down the beach.  At the end of such a fun day I love to sit on the beach and just watch the sunset! 🙂  I hope this helped give you ideas of fun things to do in Santa Barbara for the day.

What are your favorite things to do in Santa Barbara?!”
