Laura Schreffler, Haute Living's Travel writer, has taken on Santa Barbara with a guide of where to sleep, eat, wine and dine while staying on the American Riviera. In her introduction, Schreffler writes "what I have found, over the course of a long weekend, is that it’s impossible not to love Santa Barbara, a picture-perfect city on the central California coast, with the Santa Ynez Mountains peeking out in the distance...Perhaps that’s why so few of its residents leave their Spanish colonial, white stucco homes in search of greener pastures. Why leave when you have the best of everything at your disposal? Glittering views of the Pacific, wealth for days, incredible fine dining and a very happy wine trail."
