Las Vegas to California

by HildaP

My husband and I will be driving from Las Vegas to Cali in late July. We love the beach and would also like to visit some wineries. We will be flying back from Los Angeles. Would like to spend one night in Santa Barbara and one night the last night in LA that leaves me with one night not accounted for. Any suggestions as to where we should go. Any suggestions on what to do..our first time there..

If you want to visit wineries and the beach, do at least two nights in Santa Barbara. (Psst... please don't call it Cali) :-) Enjoy!

North of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara adds about 1 1/2 hour to your drive. So, leave Las Vegas early, real early, to get you into Santa Barbara with time to see and do things in Santa Barbara. North of Santa Barbara about 30 minutes of driving is Solvang and Los Olivos with the wine area of the Santa Ynez Valley. Depending on your flight out of Los Angeles, I would spend one night in Solvang giving you time to visit a few wineries in Los Olivos during the day and the wine bars in Solvang in the early evening. I have tips on VT for the three areas that you can browse at your leisure, See my web pages for;

Thank you so much, all your tips sound great..I am going to look into it..I forgot to mention in my original post that my husband does not like flying therefore I won't be able to get him to get on an extra flight from LV to LA or my choice would have been SF and Napa...but the drive is too long, we only have 3 days to spare after Vegas. I might consider returning from Vegas to NY instead of LA.

Wow! What a turn around. So, if afraid of flying and 3 days to spare, I would head in the opposite direction and vist Zion and Bryce Canyons. You then would be able to drive, see a different part of the west and fly out of Las Vegas to New York. Of course, you will miss the "American Riviera" in Santa Barbara and the wineries. Choices.

Well, I would spend a little more time north of Santa Barbara to see the coast and visit the wineries. There are dozens of good wineries between Santa Barbara, up to and around San Luis Obisbo. There are many more, almost 200, in the Paso Robles area, but you have so many options nearer the coast you won't need to venture that far.
The coast north of Santa Barbara has several good options. For an overnight, the coastal towns of Morro Bay, Cayucos or Cambria have a good selection of motels/hotels/B & Bs. I leave out Pismo Beach because personally I think it isn't as charming as the others. Hearst Castle is also nearby.

Travel Tips for Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara Tourist Information Center

by Yaqui

This is one of two visitor centers. This one is on the corner of Garden and Cabrillo Blvd. It’s where we got our tickets for the trolley tour. They had lots of brochures and information and were quite busy that day. This building is not very big so you may have to wait your turn to get into when business is booming with tourist.

Oh, be careful crossing the street, it is one of the busiest intersections I saw while there. Make sure you take advantage of when its safe to cross. Too many people were not abiding the signal and almost found themselves under a set of wheels. So be careful!!!!

Big Caliente Springs - just like being in Paradise

by bigsky

There are 3 not so well known but great hot springs in the SB Mountains with warm to *very hot* spring water. 2 are easily accessible, for 1 you need an offroad vehicle.
3 Camping Spots, Nat. Forest permit required, be prepared for freezing cold nights and animals looking for food (no, no need to get scared:).
Directions: not at hand right now, basically on top of the main mountain, ask me.

The Palm

by trvlnurse

Not indigenous to California but now an expected sighting, the palm tree has become a sightseeing must on its own in Santa Barbara. Fat, thin, colorful, plain, long leaves, short leaves- I had no idea there were so many variations of palms. I love the palm tree lined streets and palm shade on the beaches

Mission Bell Lamp Posts line the El Camino Real

by cnango

The 101 Freeway is built over the original El Camino Real, which means “Royal Highway” in Spanish. This historical road is the oldest street in California and used to be just a dusty path. The 21 California Missions were built all along the El Camino Real from San Diego to Sonoma, about 30 miles North of San Francisco hundreds of years ago. The bell pictured is situated in front of the Mission at Santa Barbara and similar bell shaped lamps line the old route of the El Camino Real to honor the California Missions and the original Royal Road.

Some Things You Should Bring

by sisterthyme

If you're visiting in late spring, summer, or early fall be sure to bring light, cool clothing. It very rarely get unbearably hot, but you'll be much more comfortable if you don't wear heavy clothing. Sandals and/or open-toed shoes are a very common and comfortable footwear during the warmer months, so I suggest you bring some. Also, you may want to bring a pair of sunglasses. The sun can get unusually glaring even during the winter. If you're visiting in late fall, winter, or early spring, be sure to bring a reasonably warm coat (preferably something you wouldn't mind being rained on), as well as an umbrella. Closed-toe shoes and/or boots will also help during this time. Just because it's Southern California doesn't mean it doesn't rain hard! If you're going to be doing more outdoorsy activities (such as hiking or bicycling), be sure to bring some tennis shoes. Bring suntan lotion if you intend to be out in the sun during summer or late spring.
