My boyfriend and I have never been to Goleta and we got an airbnb place for 2 nights. I was wondering if there are any worthwhile places for us to visit/see. Originally we were planning on a trip in Santa Barbara but we couldn't find any places for us to lodge in Downtown SB (we are on a budget) so hence getting airbnb in Goleta. We want to also go to Downtown SB too while we are there but have no idea where we could go. So if there are any recommendations for places to check out in SB and/or Goleta would be nice.
We are both into breweries, more local pubs/live music venue. Maybe a romantic beach stroll? (that would be more of my thing than my bf haha) We aren't looking to be too wild since we have a wedding we have to go to end of the SB trip so something that we can do where locals go and hang out would be nice. Not sure exactly where to start with tourist activities so any suggestions are welcome.
Also, Do people end up staying in Goleta even if they want to explore Santa Barbara? If so, how do you go about planning trips out?
Thanks in advance!
