Santa Barbara CA.This not-so-crowded beach town is the perfect mix of rugged & refined. Hike along the beachfront Cabrillo Bike Path, ride the antique carousel at Chase Palm Park, & take the kids to see the elephants at the Santa Barbara Zoo. If you have time w/out children, sip your way across downtown Santa Barbara's (walkable) Urban Wine Trail. Most of the vacation rentals here have 1-3 bedrooms & rent for as low as $116/night.
Right in the middle of beautiful Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Autocamp is the definition of mobile-park chic. Each of the five Airstreams comes with two beach cruisers so you can roam around town. Look for sister locations coming soon in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Ventura Beach.
