Hello Californians, I'm flying to Santa Barbara with the Wife as she has business and I'm going to goof off. What should I see and do? I'm thinking rent a Harley for a day and spend time at the Reagan Ranch. What else fora Kansas boy to see?

The harbor/breakwater is nice.

Brophie Brothers on the breakwater is pretty good. As is Chuck's waterfront.

You can rent jet skis or kayaks stuff like that too.

A ride over San Marcos pass is fun.

Drive up the San Marcos pass and visit Solvang. Buy yourself a souvenir from the knife shop there; they have great stuff.

Hook line and sinker for seafood. Eggs n things for breakfast. Go to Ventura and check out a mission? Visit the beach

tail end of the whale migration right now, cows and calves heading back north from Baja. The Santa Barbara channel is their highway. There's tours out of oxnard / ventura, and santa barbara.

Lots of very tasty pastry shops in Solvang.

Skip the Harley, idiot CA drivers will kill you while you are rubbernecking the scenery. 'settle' for a sporty convertible.

Skipped the idea of the bike rental, too much traffic. Went to the Maritime museum as well as the commemorative air force yesterday. I think I'll hit the Mullins car museum today.
