Romantic Things To Do in Santa Barbara



Sprawling vineyards, Pacific sunsets, and awe inspiring views set the stage for quiet moments with your sweetheart. Hike to Inspiration Point, where you can explore the natural surroundings of Santa Barbara and take in views of the Channel Islands. Sip vino together at one of the area's renowned vineyards, including Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard (a popular spot for weddings), Zaca Mesa Winery, and even the quaint Municipal Winery tasting room in town. After tasting, pack local vintages and a hearty lunch of wine country fare for a picnic at the sunken gardens of the Mediterranean-style Santa Barbara County Courthouse or the rose gardens at the historic Old Mission Santa Barbara. Lively couples might like to catch a show at the Santa Barbara Bowl, an open-air amphitheater where you can sit under the stars while listening to live music and enjoying local food, wine, and beer. For an adventure, head to the harbor to charter a sailboat from the Santa Barbara Sailing Center. Set sail for a quiet day on the Pacific, just the two of you. Or take a long beach walk and head down to the end of Stearns Wharf, where you can grab bread-bowl chowder and Telegraph beer while watching the sunset.
