Santa Barbara Day Trip
Around an hour and a half's drive north of Los Angeles is the charming coastal city of Santa Barbara. With Colonial architecture, beautiful beaches and a dramatic mountain backdrop, there's no end of sights to see here.
Visit the historic Stearns Wharf Pier, originally built in 1872; admire the Spanish Colonial Revival style building housing the Santa Barbara County Courthouse, and discover the 18th century Santa Barbara Mission.
Stroll down the shop and palm-tree lined State Street, seeing the picturesque Santa Barbara train station and exploring the traditional handicrafts market, before reaching the lively Downtown district. You can also choose to wander along the boardwalk and take in the views of the Pacific Ocean.
San Diego Day Trip
Embrace the atmosphere of a typical southern Californian city on this day trip to San Diego from Los Angeles. You'll be captivated by its fusion of Spanish roots and Mexican influence as you explore the city sights.
Admire the elegant bridge that connects San Diego with the island of Coronado; discover the fashionable Little Italy area, known for its excellent restaurants, and visit Balboa Park, home to beautiful gardens and fascinating museums.
You can also choose to explore the Wild West Old Town or the traditional town of La Jolla to experience historic San Diego, or if you're feeling more active, make the most of the beach activities available on the coast: from walking and cycling to water sports.
