Santa Barbara: America’s Riviera
Santa Barbara: America’s Riviera by for the San Francisco Bay Times
They don’t call it America’s Riviera for nothing. Santa Barbara has the coastal vibe of California, the Mediterranean influence and architecture of Spain, and that year-round temperate climate. And, it’s a perfect 5-hour getaway from the Bay Area.
What’s more fun than bicycling around town—either in a two-wheeler or a six-wheeler with your family? Wheel Fun Rentals is one block away from the beach and Stearns Wharf, in the heart of the Funk Zone. It’s the perfect starting point for rolling expeditions along Santa Barbara’s coastal bike path, along the boardwalk, past beautiful sandy beaches and all the way to the bird sanctuary.
