Our laid-back beach town is designed for serendipitous occasions - trying out a new restaurant, spontaneous wine tasting or catching the perfect sunset... whatever it is, the less planning the better. But if you're visiting California and only have a day to spend in Santa Barbara, it's best to know where to go and why. This list will give you a taste of Santa Barbara and hopefully encourage you to come again and stay longer!
SBMerge is live and back in action with a new, responsive design! We’re shifting focus away from Santa Barbara events and instead providing a comprehensive list of restaurants, wineries, activities and weekend getaways. Our mission is to help tourists and locals alike to find exactly what they’re looking for without the hassle of searching.
We’re developing a Criteria of Awesome that will be revealed soon, and every listing on the site will be rated against it. Better yet: if they don’t stand up to the test, they won’t be listed here! We’re excited about our new venture and hope you’ll be back again soon to find a new spot for dinner, take a stroll along one of our walking tours or book a weekend getaway!
