With the warm spring-like weather we’re experiencing in Los Angeles, a trip to Santa Barbara’s seashore sounds like a ticket to ride. And it is with the city ramping up its “Your Ticket to Santa Barbara Car Free Experiences” offer with wine tasting, sailing cruises, horseback riding, bicycle and walking tours as well as hotel savings, amenities and more. All you need to do is take the train, show your Amtrak ticket and you’re in for some mighty fine deal. Besides cutting costs while you’re there, you’ll also save a bundle on gas since prices at the pump are on the rise again.
