Authors Christine Salins and Maurie O’Connor documented their “car free” travel experience in Santa Barbara. They describe their stay from the initial train ride into the station to exploring the best museums, historic sites, dining and wine tasting around town. Salins and O’Connor also took advantage of the Santa Barbara Trolley Company tour, jumping on and off at the best Santa Barbara sites including the Santa Barbara Mission and Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

Salins and O’Connor describe “Hotel Santa Barbara’s central location” as perfect for visiting Santa Barbara without a car. They go on to say “We spent two nights at Hotel Santa Barbara, which despite its location in the heart of downtown, is very restful with a quiet, classic elegance. Its central location less than half a mile from the railway station makes it ideal for a car-free vacation.”

Thank you Christine and Maurie for including Hotel Santa Barbara in your visit.
