Days spent driving the roads through Montecito will wind you up at the pristine Butterfly Beach and the Biltmore Resort. This amazing town just south of Santa Barbara is home of Oprah, among many other rich and famous. The houses are spectacular, the cars are fancy and the amount of lush plants make you feel like you are in Hawaii. In Montecito there are plenty of hiking trails lead in to some spectacular ocean views as you climb through the mountains. The small downtown area has a plethora of shops, restaurants as well as a great ice cream and cupcake shop off of Coast Village Road. Feeling fancy? Stop by (or stay at) The Four Season Biltmore for a luxury stay right on the stunning coastline of the central coast.
