In Santa Barbara, food is part of the pleasure of the local lifestyle. Spend your days between palm-lined Pacific beaches and the sloping foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains in this prosperous resort community, which presents a relaxed attitude that has earned it the sobriquet American Riviera. It’s ideal for kicking back on gold-sand beaches, prowling the shops and galleries that line the village’s historic streets, and—perhaps its most memorial indulgence—relaxing over a meal in one of many top-notch cafes and restaurants.
