Program #12947RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
“People just seem friendly and happy here,” Julia Child wrote of Santa Barbara. “Who wouldn't be, when it’s so beautiful and the climate is so nice?” The California-born chef, author, media icon and embodiment of joyful living adopted the city as her home in her later years. Celebrate and learn about food, wine, culinary technique and Julia Child herself on this sumptuous journey.


Highlights

• A Santa Barbara County wine expert introduces you to the fantastic wines for which this region is known.
• A professional chef teaches you cooking techniques and tricks of the trade in a culinary demonstration featuring local produce.
