Dog Friendly Klimpton Canary Hotel Was The Best!
When I travel I like staying at one place most of the time and using that as the home base. I don’t enjoy staying a few days and off to the next city. So when I researched my trip to Santa Barbara, it was the perfect place to go for vacation because it had everything I love. It has the mountains, the sea and a beautiful city. Both my husband and myself are avid bikers and this Spanish inspired city has bike lanes everywhere. People are super sweet and respectful toward the bikers. It’s so refreshing! We ubered from the airport to our Klimpton Hotel Canary. No need to rent a car. The plan was we were planing on biking and walking everywhere. We had three excursion planed in which they picked us up from our hotel. In my part 1 of Santa Barbara I will show you bit and pieces of the city, the architecture and the landscape.
The hotel has Spanish inspired decor throughout, with lots of colored tile. The city itself has lots of Mexican heritage. Much of the architecture is Spanish Colonial Revival and Mission Revival style.We walked and biked the city the first few days. Then we treated ourselves to a massage at the Float Spa. It was the perfect way to unwind heading to a busy week of wine tasting and biking.
What do you think of this city? Some people may feel that 10 days is too much in one place. But if you take in consideration all the sights outside the city such as the wine country, and the mountain landscape there is ton to see. People are super friendly and bikes come first on the road. In part 2 Santa Barbara excursions I will cover the wine country, mountains and sea.
