As the Summer comes to a close, there is still plenty of sunshine to celebrate here in Santa Barbara. The days are usually in the 70s, clear and sunny. Locals and visitors will still be visiting the beaches, kayaking the shoreline and surfing the breaks — though these are year around activities when you are on the sunny central coast. Here are some of the fun goings-on around town this this September.
Wine Tours of Santa Ynez, Every day 10am pickup.
Come explore Santa Barbara’s wine region by shuttle van or on bike. Wine Tours by Bike include all needed biking equipment and shuttle support. Call for more information 805-884-9283.

September in Santa Barbara never ceases to make me smile! I’ll be catching the waves late into the evenings here and maybe follow that with my favorite wine! In any case, hopefully we’ll see you around town having a great time too!
