Get away for the day to Santa Barbara, the popular beach town known as The American Riviera. Characterized by oceanfront views, unique shopping, great food and distinctive architecture, downtown Santa Barbara offers palm-lined thoroughfares where you’ll be surrounded by charming shops and boutiques, tantalizing eateries and beautiful buildings. The State Street Promenade is a newly created pedestrian mall where multiple blocks of State Street are closed to vehicle traffic allowing restaurants and other businesses to expand onto sidewalks and into Santa Barbara’s main boulevard, infusing a sense of energy and vitality. Paseo Nuevo is Santa Barbara’s Mediterranean-style, outdoor shopping center that features a variety of name brand stores. Enjoy lunch on your own with approximately 4 ½ hours at leisure to relax, explore, browse and soak up all that this sophisticated beach town has to offer. If shopping is not your thing, this afternoon you can take advantage of an optional excursion to celebrate the world’s most exotic flower at the 76th annual International Orchid Show – one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious horticulture events in the world! Enjoy time at leisure exploring orchid art, photography and grand orchid arrangements installed by local, national and international artisans. Featuring over a half-acre of orchids, the show provides a rare opportunity to explore an unprecedented variety of orchid species and hybrids – each a living and gorgeous work of art that celebrates the orchid’s beguiling depth and color. Grower demonstrations, workshops, exhibitors vying for the titles of “Best Orchid in Show” and “Grand Champion Cymbidium,” and vendors selling a variety of orchids, make this a rich and unique orchid experience.
