EXPERIENCE DETAILS

Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a can’t miss destination for foodies with its fresh-off-the-boat seafood and farm-to-table meals pairing perfectly with the many local wines of the area. Much like its French counterpart, this small coastal city is also home to waterfront views, warm weather and a welcoming community of makers and artists more than happy to showcase their craft. 

Experience redefined luxury with a stay at the Hotel Californian in the heart of the city’s Funk Zone neighborhood, a storied area located between the Pacific Ocean and Highway 101 that is also the epicenter of the Urban Wine Trail. With a rooftop pool and deck as well as waterfront views, each room — designed by celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard — features a modern take on the Mediterranean inspiration of the town. 

Within walking distance of your hotel are the best of Santa Barbara’s dining offerings, with a fresh catch dinner and farm-to-table restaurant both just steps away. On your second morning, accompany your chef for dinner that night as he sources ingredients from the city’s largest farmer’s market, with a light sushi lunch followed by time to stroll through the many art galleries and boutique stores that call Santa Barbara home.

No trip to the beach is complete without a yacht tour, which you’ll enjoy alongside gourmet appetizers and rose, as well as an afternoon champagne tour around the town’s best tasting rooms. End the tour with a stop by McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams, “the best ice cream in the world,” according to TIME Magazine. 

After a final waterfront dinner watching the sun set behind the Pacific, head to the runway and board your private flight home. There’s beauty, and then there’s Santa Barbara.

FAQ

What do I need to know about sailing to enjoy the first activity?
Absolutely nothing! That is the beauty of charting the skippered 36-foot Marina yacht. You will simply be able to relax, enjoy the music, and gourmet lunch served with rosé on board.

Should I bring my beach attire?
That is entirely up to you! We are leaving 3 prime afternoon hours unplanned for you to explore and enjoy Santa Barbara in whatever terms that means to you. You can expect the daytime highs to be in the 70s.

Will we be visiting any Santa Barbara wineries?
While you will have many opportunities to sample the locally grown and produced wines of Santa Barbara, most notably your wine paired dinner following the farmer’s market, this trip is designed to be more city centric. We will not be spending any time touring or focused in the countryside.
