View of East Beach in Santa Barbara

Here are our top four things to do during your destination wedding or honeymoon in Santa Barbara:

Skip busy East Beach for its slightly more secluded neighbor. Butterfly Beach is perfect for long walks and tide pooling as well as sunbathing.

Don't leave town without trying some of the city's best local food. La Super Rica and Lilly's Tacos are renowned for their fast, fresh Mexican fare.
