I'm looking forward to staying at the Hotel Oceana Santa Barbara, a charming Santa Barbara beachfront hotel providing endless ocean, mountain, and marina views. I'm definitely going to lounge by their outside courtyard, and then make my way over to the outdoor heated pools. The hotel also provides complementary two hour bike rentals, perfect for people like me who is always finding ways to squeeze fitness vacations (how else would I be able to justify the vacation food binges?). At night, I'm definitely going to walk over to the Marina and State Street, two of my favorite Santa Barbara hangouts and enjoy the light ocean breeze and the vibrant quaintness that one can only find in cities by the sea.
I hope you are having a fabulous summer weekend!
