Santa Barbara daytrips from L.A.

Your chartered railcar is connected to Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner, transporting you from the bustle of L.A. to the more laidback ambiance of Santa Barbara. You and your guests can climb aboard the Downtown Waterfront Trolley, or take a self-guided Red Tile Walking tour of many of the city’s notable landmarks. Visit historic Stearns Wharf or explore the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum at Santa Barbara Harbor. Browse the many fine art galleries.
