Tired of the usual outings? How about the unusual? Check out the Grapeseed Company, where you can make a custom scent. They sell oils, soaps, lotions, and such. Be sure to pre-book for your private party. The Painted Cabernet has has great reviews and can be very fun to do with friends. Here you can paint your own master piece of art! If you want to be even more different, head over to the Santa Barbara Zoo and compare yourself to real party animals! That is definitely unusual and untraditional for your bachelor- or bachelorette party.
Want a unique dinner? Reserve a fire-pit table at Cafe Zaytoon. It’s a really cool atmosphere… there is belly dancing on weekend nights and great Mediterranean food. Another spot for dinner with high ratings for atmosphere and great cocktails is the Blush Restaurant & Lounge. The location brags that it IS the top bachelorette party location for Santa Barbara limousine customers. Our exclusive wine tours to the Santa Maria- and Santa Ynez Valleys are also a pick where you cannot go wrong.
There is always the strong cocktails and fun crowd at Joe’s Cafe.
Some fun beach restaurants for daytime food and drinks:
- Shoreline Beach Cafe at Leadbetter Beach
- East Beach Grill at East Beach
- Brophy Brothers at the Harbor
- Beachside Bar Cafe at Goleta Beach
- Brophy Brothers
Like kayaking? If you take off from the Santa Barbara Harbor, there will be no need to fight the swells like at the beach. You can cruise through the harbor, check out all the yachts, get some exercise, and check out the sea life. You should definitely visit the SB Sailing Center. Many of our wine tours clients love the local wine-tasting venues along the coastal American Rivera, including the Deep Sea Tasting Room on Stearns Wharf. Here you can sip wines while enjoying an unmatched view of the ocean. Others prefer the romantic sunset cruises, where you can enjoy champagne and a dinner on the sea. Many people fall in love with the Channel Islands National Park when they visit the incredible islands just miles of our coast. We’ve even had LAX sedan customers flying in from abroad to head straight to these islands for camping, hiking, kayaking, and other recreational activities.
Don’t like the water? Consider taking a nice hike. For out-of-towners, we would suggest Inspiration Point. It is a pretty easy to find with a well marked trail. It’s a popular trail and there will be others in case you get a bit lost. On the trail you cross a small creek, see a huge variety of plant life and end with a great view of the city. Also worth checking out for locals and visitors alike is the Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park, a cave with Native-American pictograms dating back thousands of years.
If you’re anti-sweat, just call us to book any Santa Barbara limousine and we can take you and your party to shop. State Street is the city’s main street and also a great spot which can keep you busy most of the day. You can cool down with some ice cream at McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams. Many of our client’s favorite is the peppermint stick, but many others swear the island coconut flavor is best! State Street is home to a huge numbers of restaurants, bars, shops and cafes. Maybe the most popular destination on State Street is the SB Bowl. Check their itineraries for upcoming shows, and make sure to reserve ahead of time to enjoy a dinner along with your show.
If you go to the Public Market, we HIGHLY recommend trying a cupcake at Enjoy Cupcakes. Trust us!
Don’t forget to use our LAX sedan, SUV-, bus- or limo service to retrieve your out-of-town guests from the airport! Great way to welcome them and start the experience off right. Whether your visitors fly in from the local airport, Burbank, L.A.X. or any other Southern California airport, you can trust our services to be timely and professional.
