help on vacation in California June 1-3

We need to be in the Los Angeles area for a wedding on May 31st and want to spend a few more days in California vacationing afterward. We are looking for suggestions for locale. We do not want to stay in LA nor do we want to go to San Diego (previous visits). We were thinking of the Santa Barbara area and were wondering what to do there. We want a relaxing vacation with possible walks and bike rides. We are open to other suggestions as well. Rebecca

Santa Barbara is a great choice. Also look into Catalina.

If you decide on Santa Barbara, there are lots of things to do to keep you busy. Not sure about any bike trails or where to go for that. Hopefully, one of the locals there will respond and recommend some good bike riding routes.

Here are a few activities you could do while visiting SB:

Stearns Wharf

Visit the historical mission ( santabarbara.com/points_of_interest/mission/ )

Check out the courthouse ( santabarbara.com/points_of_interest/… )

Go wine tasting in Santa Ynez and/or Los Olivos

Visit the Danish town of Solvang
