Following, a local guide will join us for a narrated driving tour of Santa Barbara to highlight its history, architecture, gardens and more. See the inside of the County Courthouse, a magnificent Spanish-Moorish “palace” surrounded by lawns and a sunken tropical garden. The beautiful architecture of this building combined with its hand-painted ceilings, wrought iron chandeliers, giant murals, and imported tiles give this relatively new building an ancient feel.

Join us as we travel to the Circle Bar B Ranch for live theatre in a rustic, dude-ranch setting in Refugio Canyon, north of Santa Barbara. What do you say we get in a little trouble? With Boeing Boeing, we just may be able to do just that! This 1960′s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time. Before the show, enjoy an included down-home-style barbecue brunch complete with all the fixins’ and dessert. We continue the Circle Bar B tradition by serving champagne and mimosas aboard the motorcoach.
