Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch, Santa Barbara
Neverland Ranch is amazing. Regardless of how you feel about Michael Jackson, he is an absolute legend. His music has changed lives, and inspired many. Anyway, the ranch is positively beautiful and it is worth the drive if you are in the area. I visit every so often with my family. I usually stay in Santa Barbara, there is just more to do in SB then the surrounding areas. The beaches, food, downtown, it's a great vacation spot. I would totally recommend The Sandman Inn (www.thesandmaninn.com). It's located downtown and it won't break the bank!
Whatever you may feel about Michael Jackson, he is undoubtedly the biggest pop star of the 80's generation. I'm personally indifferent to him, but having been in his former neighborhood, I thought it a novel idea to go by his Neverland Ranch. Located in the small city of Los Olivos.
