So, I took this wonderful trip to Santa Barbara with my mom last fall. I've never been there before but have always heard about their wonderful spanish architecture and was dying to see it. The weather was phoenominal, warm and sunny, and the scenery was to die for. We drove down Hwy 1 along the coast line, thru some windy mountain areas and finally into the town. Dinner was at a scrumptious little mexican restaurant and then the next day was full of wandering around the area looking at all the gorgeous buildings. The courthouse is amazing, and has a tower with a 360 degree view. The best thing was spending the time with my mom.
