A couple of weekend tour suggestions.

In between wine tasting and dining in Santa Barbara, you might have some time for a couple of cultural pursuits.

Historic Architectural Walking Tours of Santa Barbara every Saturday and Sunday. Experience Santa Barbara—its architecture and its past—in a unique and personal way. Join a small group walking tour of the downtown area. Led by trained docents of the Architectural Foundation, the tour focuses on architectural styles, significant and historic buildings, and aesthetics, past and present building usage, and landscape history. Discover why Santa Barbara is so often called "The Riviera of America". The Saturday tour leaves from the centrally located de la Guerra Plaza Saturdays at 10 a.m. (rain cancels). The Sunday tour leaves from the entrance of the Public Library Sundays at 10 a.m. There is a $10.00 donation requested per person.

Botanic Garden Docent Led Tours. Garden tours are conducted every Saturday and Sunday at 11:00AM and 2:00pm. The tour takes about an hour and meet the docent in front of the Garden Shop. There is an $8.00  garden admission fee, including the tour.
