The Destination
Sunny, postcard-perfect Santa Barbara is a celebrated Southern California destination resting between the rugged cliffs of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the blue waters of the Pacific. Known as the American Riviera for its picturesque architecture and balmy weather, Santa Barbara abounds with activity. Sip on the flavors of the Central Coast via a wine tasting at a local winery, then visit Arroyo Burro Beach Park, a local favorite for picnics, surfing, and sunset strolls.

The Digs
You won't need to be reminded to stop and smell the roses at the Simpson House Inn. The boutique hotel is nestled behind tall hedges on an acre of quaint English gardens, and the award-winning inn is anything but garden-variety. The 15 guest rooms and suites scattered across the main house, garden cottages, and carriage house feature private patios, fireplaces, and English country-inspired interiors. "While the Simpson is pretty grand, with French antique armoires, wood-burning fireplaces, and an acre of flowering gardens, it still feels like a home," says

The Diversions
Soak up the gorgeous weather and take a hike on the Rattlesnake Trail, or borrow one of the inn's bikes and peddle the two-mile coastal pathway. Head down to one of the charming cafes on State Street before hopping on the trolley to Stearns Wharf, where you can take a stroll on the beach. Then, return to Simpson House for some downtime, an in-room spa treatment, and afternoon refreshments. Mediterranean-inspired hors d'œuvres and wine are served between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.—a nice precursor to a sunset cruise with the Santa Barbara Sailing Center.

The next day, awaken feeling fresh as a daisy, and savor a complimentary gourmet breakfast in your room, or in the antique-filled main dining room. Oenophiles will want to visit a number of wineries in the area and taste the vino that springs from local soil, while shoppers can get their fill at Paseo Nuevo or El Paseo.
