…On the one hand you need to get to your destination, somehow — spoiler alert — and cars have a very handy way of making that dream a reality. On the other hand once your car is there, with you, at the place you want to chillax, there’s the figuring out where to put it, and how much it’ll be to put it there, and if you take it out of where you put it how much it’ll be to put it somewhere else, like a restaurant or attraction. Finding that restaurant or attraction, from your homebase of your hotel, can be more delightfully, and money-saving-ly, done on foot, of course, or with public transport. Questions, question, should I take the car or should I not, if I plan to walk a lot. Santa Barbara sweetly helps out the traveler in this querying regard, each and every year, via the Santa Barbara Car Free program. It’s back around, for 2016, and the savings and suggestions are plentiful, and earth-nice-able, as always.
