Romantic Weekend Getaway in Santa Barbara
By Train: The Pacific Surfliner is a great way to get to Santa Barbara, making for a perfect car-free getaway. There are five trains daily from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara, with two continuing to San Luis Obispo. The Santa Barbara station is an easy walk or 25-cent shuttle ride from most of the hotels and sights along State Street.
By Car: The fastest and most direct route to Santa Barbara is U.S. 101, which runs right through town. It takes about 90 minutes, or a little longer, depending on traffic. Weekend traffic is highest, especially if there's construction somewhere along the route.
