Description

Santa Barbara awaits with its rich culture, white-sandy beaches, and famous Stearns Wharf—a meeting point for diners, fun-seekers, and shoppers alike. Get acquainted with an authentic Danish village before the tour continues to the remarkable Hearst Castle.

Visit a Spanish mission in Santa Barbara to learn what an impact the early missionaries had on the development of the region before you enjoy expansive coastal views from the downtown pier. Charming little shops, a replica of the famous “Little Mermaid,” and a tribute to Hans Christian Andersen—the famed Danish fable writer—are some of the highlights you see as this journey continues to the quaint town of Solvang.

Historical landmark Hearst Castle has dazzled its visitors since its heyday in the 1920s and '30s, when the Hollywood and political elite frequented this architectural marvel. Built as a home for the iconic William Randolph Hearst, the castle today serves as a highlight for California visitors. You get to discover its glamorous history and vast collection of rare and ancient artifacts while strolling around the expansive suites and beautifully landscaped gardens.

The most important thing is for anyone taking this trip is to remember that it is a very, very long day up to 12-14 hours so have a rest day the next day. The trip was fabulous and we had a fabulous time but the time for travel was longer than we thought it would be.
