Santa Barbara Getaway

Last Friday my husband and I packed up the family wagon and headed north for a weekend getaway with our friends, who also recently had a baby. Our arrival at the Bacara Hotel coincided with Happy Hour. Happy Hour took place on our room's balcony as each room comes equipped with a courtesy bottle of Firestone wine, and it is restocked each day! (For those patrons without babies there is an amazing circle bar off the lobby that has live music on the weekends).  Other kid/baby friendly features at the Barcara include, a kiddie pool, Monarch Children camp, and portable cribs.

The next day was filled with brunching, beach walks and dips in the pool. That night we dined at our favorite restaurant, Lucky's. The restaurant is located in Montecito which is 20 minutes south of the hotel but the food, drinks and swanky ambiance is worth the drive.

Unfortunately we did not have time to visit Santa Barbara's breakfast hot spot D'Angelos.  Bar none this bakery has the best chocolate croissants in Southern California.
