Santa Barbara’s Top Five Diamonds in the Rough


Here are some of the most picturesque locations in Santa Barbara.


Santa Barbara’s Rainbow, the “Chromatic Gate”  right in front of the Fess Parker Hotel.



“Sterns Wharf”

So beautiful and serene once the tourists have gone to sleep, it might  be a little chilly but the city lights make it worth it.



“Saddle Rock”

A great stopping point for an epic view, off of Saddle Rock trailhead above Montecito.



“Butterfly Beach”

All locals will tell you Butterfly Beach is hidden gem, no matter when you stop by, it is always an amazing place to be.



“The Wall”

Near Butterfly Beach, is an ocean facing “Wall” that is perfect for any rendezvous, or an early morning coffee break over looking the sea.
