Make sure you visit the chinese restuarant in town if still there....maggie may's or something, can't quite remember......
That in sf? If that's the place we went there in the early eighties and have a pic with the chef with a hAndfull of my aunties tit
Santa Barbara. Do the trolley tour from the seafront, it's a great taster. The zoo is awesome. Breakfast at sambos or esaus or both! Dinner at the enterprise fish co. avoid dinner on the pier which is mediocre. Whale watching boats are good but may be put of season, it gets cold on the water too. Take a nice long walk up and down state street and check out the second hand shops for nice mementos.
Take a drive over the mountains to Santa ynez for wine tasting, maybe get a cheap hotel cos that wine tastes real fine.
Herst castle further up the coast is well worth a look and will leave you feeling very poor
I'll look for more to do when I can think of it. I grew up in S.B. , took my girlfriend there for her first trip to the states and made her my wife there. The west coast is **** beautiful, you'll love it.
Are you going to Carmel/monterey? If so I know good food paces there too!
