I just returned from a trip to Santa Barbara, California. It’s Spring there, so temperatures were averaging in the low seventies during the day, a little cooler at night. Sometimes I felt like I needed a jacket at night, but most of the time I didn’t. It’s probably a little warmer there now since it’s closer to Summer. I packed items similar to these, and wore a couple of similar outfits. I was only there for 5 days, but this list is to help you pack for 10 days for Santa Barbara. You don’t have to bring a one-piece swimsuit, but I’d suggest it if you’re doing any water sports (like Stand Up Paddleboarding). Most of these pieces can also double as beach cover-ups after you’ve worn them as clothing. The city is very walkable, so the comfortable lace-up espadrilles are a must, as well as the straw bag for carrying all of your goodies. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen, you’ll need it!
Have you been to Santa Barbara in the Spring before? What kind of clothing did you pack?
