Barb Gonzalez Photography/Bulletin The vineyards cover the low slopes of many mountains, and hiking and mountain biking are popular activities in high altitude areas.

Santa Cruz Island (Santa Cruz Island) is located 20 miles south of the city beach of Santa Barbara. It is the largest of the islands that make up the Channel Islands National Park. The boat is moored at Chase Palm Park on the sea east of Stearns Wharf.

The 25-year-old Santa Barbara native Ryland "Ry" Grivetti guides the local outfitter Santa Barbara Adventure Company in multiple sports. Although on this day he led a short trip between the port of Santa Barbara and the suburbs of Montecito, he still enjoys hiking and kayaking in the Channel Islands.

Photo/briefing of Barb Gonzalez Two generations of surfers traverse the coast of Carpenteria at the eastern end of Santa Barbara County. Surfing has always been popular in Santa Barbara, where Al Merrick, one of the most famous chessboard makers, still has a shop in the new Funk Zone.

The Channel Islands followed a young surfer for a test break at Rincon, a popular surfing spot near Carpenteria, east of San Compbara. Since the 1950s, surfing culture has been a major attraction for visitors from all over Southern California.

The brown pelican-perched next to a sign that says "No Pelicans" ("Do Not Feed Pelicans")-welcomes visitors to Stearns Wharf. The pier extends to the Pacific Ocean at the foot of State Street and is a popular destination for local fishermen to try their luck.

Barb Gonzalez's photo/briefing (Moby Dick Restaurant) is a fixture on Stearns Wharf, which is believed to be the longest wooden wharf on the West Coast, one third of a mile away. It was built in 1872 and has been damaged by many storms and fires over the years. It is still one of the main attractions of Santa Barbara.

In the heart of State Street, Santa Barbara's main thoroughfare, there are high-end boutiques and galleries, chic restaurants and several classic theaters. Its iconic Spanish Revival architecture began with the city's revival after the earthquake in 1925.

Photo/briefing by Barb Gonzalez The Santa Barbara County Courthouse is a model of Spanish Moorish design and was completed in 1929. Visitors can visit its 80-foot-high bell tower, accompanied by a guide, can enjoy the panoramic view of its red tile roof from the mountains to the ocean.

Photo/Bulletin by Barb Gonzalez One of the two bells in the tower of the Presidio Church used to call the residents of Santa Barbara to worship. Father Junipero Serra established the church in 1782, although the bronze bell was not cast until a few years later.

The Old Mission Santa Barbara (Old Mission Santa Barbara), commonly referred to as the "Queen" of the 21 Franciscan churches in California, was established on December 4, 1786, at the Feast of Santa Barbara. The church was built on a hillside about 1 mile from the city center. In 1820, the adjacent monastery was completed in 1870.

The Moorish fountain was built in 1808, outside the Old Mission Santa Barbara (Old Mission Santa Barbara), next to a large pool where Chumash Indian women used to wash their clothes. The church itself was built in 1820, restored in 1927 after the major earthquake, and its tower was reinforced in 1953.

A huge plate of scallops and pureed cauliflower is waiting to be shown to a dinner dinner in Bouchon. Restaurant owner Mitchell Sjerven promotes local ingredients in all of his kitchen dishes, supplementing the philosophy of serving only Santa Barbara County wines. Below: Bouchon's executive chef Greg Murphy pulls a cart full of agricultural products and eats from the farm to the table. He is shopping at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market twice a week. Bouchon invites customers to join Murphy at the dinner table paired with wine.

Upham is a self-proclaimed "boutique" hotel with 58 rooms in 7 buildings. It was built in 1871 and was fully restored in the 1980s. Located within walking distance of downtown Santa Barbara, it is the oldest and continuously operating hotel in Southern California.

Santa Barbara, California—Beautiful paved bike paths extend along the coastline of the Santa Barbara Channel in Southern California. In the 70-degree winter temperature, cycling is a pleasure and a great way to make the city feel like the "American Riviera".

Like its Mediterranean counterparts in France and Italy, Santa Barbara has warm ocean currents and beaches surrounded by palm trees, with stunning mountains as a backdrop. The city has lush gardens and red-painted roof architecture, reminiscent of images of another place and era.

However, from the current bicycle sitting to the bicycle sitting. Although the population of Santa Barbara is only slightly larger than the population of Bend-according to the most recent census, there are approximately 90,000 people-the city is only two hours away from the Los Angeles metropolitan area (the international airport) Drive), the hee make of tourism makes it seem bigger.

{%TravSanta-p03 032215%} Ryland "Ry" Grivetti, 25 years old, is a native of Santa Barbara. He coaches Santa Barbara Adventure Co. (Santa Barbara Adventure Co.) many times. He spends every day It took three hours to lead me and photographer Barb Gonzalez on a simple seaside alley. We start and end next to the Chase Palm Park. We first venture west to see the city’s ports and piers, then pass the historic Stearns Wharf, and then stroll around here.

The eastward journey parallel to Cabrillo Avenue is longer, but more scenic. After passing by the seaside hotel and resort, we glided at a slightly salty entrance, which became a refuge for birds, and outside the city zoo, its giraffe stretched its neck over the palm of its hand and watched us pass by. In Montecito, an upscale suburb with many Hollywood stars, we hovered down, but before admiring the magnificent scenery of the Channel Islands, an offshore national park, we hovered all the time. {%TravSanta-p02 032215%}

Colonial history

Santa Barbara's main passage, State Street, starts at the foot of the pier and extends inward to the Santa Ynez Mountains for several miles. The core neighborhood is located half a mile between Ortega and Sola streets, packed with high-end boutiques, stylish restaurants with dining terraces (which can extend to the sidewalk), several classic theaters and St. Baba La Art Museum. Behind one block on Anacapa Street, most of the city’s contemporary and historic government buildings are gathered. {%TravSanta-p08 032215%}

The city was founded in 1850, and by 1910 it was the location of the first major film studio in California: Flying A Studios produced hundreds of silent films. However, in 1925, the city was destroyed by an earthquake. When the city was rebuilt, it adopted Spanish Revival and Moorish styles, resulting in a building that is now famous all over the world.

There is no better place to capture the scene than the 80-foot bell tower of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse completed in 1929. The slanted red tiles on the whitewashed walls occupy the view to the sea and mountains from all angles. {%TravSanta-p09 032215%}Visitors can find their way to this habitat by participating in a free tour of the court led by a workshop, which is widely regarded as one of the best examples of American Spanish Moorish design. Painted ceilings, tiled stairwells, carved wooden doors and wrought iron chandeliers pass through the beautiful second-floor mural room.

Pick up a handy brochure for the self-guided red tile walking tour, which will take visitors to 22 historic city center landmarks, starting from the beautiful sunken garden behind the courthouse. However, it helps to understand some early urban history:

About 13,000 years ago, Chumash Indians settled on this coast until Franciscan friars from Spain and Mexico came here at the end of the 18th century. Indeed, Father Junipero Serra brought grape shavings and helped establish the first wine industry in the region. Spain maintained its political influence until 1822, followed by Mexico, until 1848, when Mexico was ceded to the United States after the Mexican War.

In the blocks east of State Street, Canon Perdido and De la Guerra streets are the richest streets in early history. El Presidio de Santa Barbara National Historical Park, rebuilt on the original 1782 basis of the last Spanish military post in California, displays a cathedral and the second oldest adobe and parish settlement in California. {%TravSanta-p10 032215%}

Casa de la Guerra is a U-shaped adobe from 1827, which was remodeled in 1923 when it was the home of Presidio commander Jose de la Guerra. Once a popular public meeting place, it is now a museum reflecting the time when the commander lived. The museum dates back to 1858. The Santa Barbara Museum of History is located one block away, with an exquisite collection of cultural relics and more 18th-century adobe houses that the city’s wealthy residents once lived.

You don’t want to leave the Santa Barbara Museum of Art first and want to leave Santa Barbara’s city center. It is considered one of the best art museums on the West Coast, displaying works by Botticelli, Titian and other Italian painters of the Renaissance. The locals spoke highly of the Lobero Theater. It was built in 1873 as an opera house and rebuilt in 1924. It is the oldest continuous theater in California.

"Missionary Queen"

However, the most visited places in the city are not in the urban areas. The Old Mission Santa Barbara (Old Mission Santa Barbara) stands on a hillside a mile away.

It was established on December 4, 1786, the Feast Day of Santa Barbara. It was the 10th of 21 Franciscan missions conducted in Camino Real, California, and the first that was not led by Father Serra. The established missionary, Father Serra lifted the cross in Presidio in 1782 and died in 1784. {%TravSanta-p12 032215%}

Since 1820, this magnificent missionary church has been serving the parish regularly and has since replaced the previous adobe structure. The city was restored in 1927 after the last major earthquake, and its twin clock towers were reinforced in 1953. Its nickname is "Mission Queen".

The self-guided tour starts from the gift shop, passes through a series of small rooms, then enters the central garden, and finally enters the mission church. The nave of the church is hung with two 200-year-old paintings. Exhibits describe mission activities, including handicrafts and trade, cooking and music. The rich collection of Spanish colonial art includes three stone sculptures carved by Chumash Indian, a resident of Santa Barbara, flanked by virtues of faith and charity.

Since 1789, there has been a cemetery next to this church where dozens of early Santa Barbara settlers and approximately 4,000 Indians have been buried.

Before the mission, there was a beautiful Moorish fountain, built in 1808, earlier than the church. Chumash women used to wash clothes in a large pool near the fountain. {%TravSanta-p13 032215%}

The 65-acre Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (Santa Barbara Botanic Garden) occupies 65 acres and is located behind Old Mission Santa Barbara, not far from the 1,000-mile trail along the foothill trail. A variety of native plants. Both are close to the family-oriented natural history museum.

For museum lovers, there are many other such city attractions. The Santa Barbara Zoo has more than 500 animals. There are local maritime museums, surf museums, and even dolls and teddy bear museums.

In the seafood restaurants of Stearns Wharf (such as the Santa Barbara Shellfish Company), gift shops and galleries, the Ty Warner Marine Center encourages children to come in contact with sharks and feel their way in the tide pool. The pier was built in 1872 and has been damaged by many storms and fires over the years. With a length of 1/3 mile, it is considered the longest wooden pier on the west coast and still one of the most visited attractions in the city. {%TravSanta-p07 032215%}

Market to table

In addition to historical attractions, our best experiences are all related to food and wine, especially when we visited the Santa Barbara Farmers Market with Chef Greg Murphy. His Bouchon restaurant offers a market tour for all those who book a table and pair wine with three courses.

Even in winter, two days a week, a state street in the old city of the city is lined with fresh local products and other foods from local farms and ranches. Murphy led us through this street market, and when he greeted the growers and exchanged food with other local chefs, he dragged a flatbed cart. {%TravSanta-p16 032215%}

“Because Bouchon strictly adheres to the Santa Barbara County wine list, (owner) Mitchell (Sjerven) instructed that the food should reflect the wine,” Murphy told us.

He bought oranges from Somers Ranches in Fillmore and used them in fennel and orange vinaigrette. He bought capocca pumpkins for soup, strawberries for garnish and kale from Lane Farms in Goleta. Murphy said: "I simmer or blanch the kale in butter and chicken broth, and then serve it with lamb racks or white bean paste."

He added cabbage, watercress, ginger, green onions and green garlic to K&C Garden in Goleta. "The boss is from Hong Kong," Murphy said. "He has an acre of raised bed in his backyard." Tamai Farms in Oxnard provided golden and chioggia beets and arugula.

The chef also said that market growers also provide onions and potatoes, “but we use 200 pounds of onions and potatoes a week, so we don’t buy them here.” “Bulk goods are not worth buying in the market. We also supply them from outside. To obtain protein and cheese from the merchant." {%TravSanta-p17 032215%}

Two hours later, we sat in Bouchon Santa Barbara and enjoyed the harvest. Our dinner started with Tamai beets and arugula, sprinkled in vinaigrette, with roasted hazelnuts and lemon-flavored burrata cheese. Continue to the forest mushroom stew with truffled spinach, roasted tomatoes and K&C watercress. Dates and dandelion fruits are folded into farm-raised venison medallions, with green garlic sauce and butternut squash puree. This is of course a meal to remember.

Good wine country

The wine we chose this time is the 2011 BoRific red blend from Jamie Slone Wines, whose tasting room is six blocks away from Bouchon. The next day, Slone personally attended and described the dark and velvety vintage we liked: "This is a Bordeaux wine, aged 24 months in French oak barrels," he said. "It is 63% Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small portion of Malbec and Petit Verdot." {%TravSanta-p18 032215%}

Slone's winemaker is Doug Margerum. His own small-batch wine company Magrum specializes in Rhone Valley varieties, and its tasting room is almost next door. A total of 23 wineries and tasting rooms are an important part of the city’s urban wine road, representing the production of many nearby vineyards, which produce outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Connaught, Chardonnay and other varieties.

Approximately half of the city’s tasting rooms are located in The Funk Zone, a 12-block 19th century warehouse that is now home to galleries, restaurants, breweries and breweries. The area is located two blocks east of State Street and two blocks north of Cabrillo Boulevard by the sea. It also includes the Santa Barbara Art Foundry and various sporting goods stores, including Al Merrick's Channel Island surfboards.

It is not cheap, but we cannot choose a better place to stay than The Upham, the hotel is conveniently located just a few steps from the city. The hotel was built in the Victorian era in 1871 and was fully restored in the 1980s. Today it is said to be the oldest and continuously operating hotel in Southern California. {%TravSanta-p19 032215%}

The 58 rooms and suites are located in seven buildings built of mahogany and surrounded by an acre of gardens. There are 8 other rooms in a country house near the hotel, and Louie’s restaurant offers international cuisine.

We are especially grateful to Santa Barbara for doing its best to keep the city car-free. In fact, the relative lack of foot traffic on State Street is impressive. Maps for buses and bicycle lanes are easily available, and they can even indicate overpasses and underpasses that can be used by bicycles and pedestrians. Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated here, and the county supports the Santa Barbara car-free project and offers other travel options.

These options are very helpful to us.
