The Ultimate Foodie Road Trip: Ventura + Santa Barbara

Removed from Likes

Ventura and Santa Barbara are open for business, so California Dream Eater took an epic road trip to snack, sip and support the community. 

Beyond the many great food options in Ventura County there are all sorts of activities available to help you work up an appetite. Check out the surf scene at Rincon, wander through the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and explore some of the many hiking and biking trails. Insider tip: When it’s time to move on, traveling by train between Ventura and Santa Barbara is a great way to go.

Speaking of Santa Barbara, be sure to stop by the Funk Zone when you’re in town. It’s an urban enclave of wine-tasting rooms, cool restaurants, and artist’s studios. If children are along for the ride, pay a visit to MOXI, the Wolf Museum of Innovation + Exploration—the hands-on activities are huge hit with the little ones. And for a truly memorable experience, go glamping at El Capitan Canyon.
