We stayed in the Hilton in Santa Barbara and quickly explored the city along with Malibu and Santa Monica.
For breakfast, we went to Backyard Bowls and had oatmeal, yogurt or smoothie bowls!
Then we went a few doors down to the BEST COFFEE shop, Santa Barbara Roasting Company. This is the best coffee I have ever had, so if you like coffee, you need to go. Then, we took our coffee to go and headed to the shopping area in Santa Barbara to explore!
Next, we got back into the car and drove to Malibu for lunch. We got smoothie bowls from SunLife Organics! It is definitely a very healthy place, which was great for us, since we had In-N-Out burger the day before! I got a mint matcha chip smoothie, which was gone way too fast!
Then, we got back in the car and stopped at the Santa Monica Pier to see what it was like and get a quick pic! It was raining and cold, so I don’t recommend going when the weather isn’t nice, since the rides weren’t going, so we didn’t really get a good taste of what the pier is truly like, unfortunately.
After that, we got back in the car and drove to Santa Monica. I totally fell in love with Santa Monica. The town is so cute and there are so many places to eat and shop!
We shopped for an hour or so, then went to The Butcher’s Daughter for dinner. This is one of my favorite places to go to in NYC, and it was just as amazing in Santa Monica!
Lastly, for dessert we went down the street from the Butcher’s Daughter to Pressed Juicery. We love Pressed, so we were really looking forward to getting their “ice cream”! We also got some juice for our trip to LA the next morning.
