Discover Santa Ynez Valley

Just up the coast from Los Angeles, nestled in Santa Barbara County along the Los Padres National Forest, is the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. Many of the best produce farms in Southern California grow here, as well as some very accomplished vineyards. The Valley is also just inland from the Pacific Ocean, so there is always a constant influx of high-quality seafood. This leads to some of the best fusion and nouveau-American cuisine, including a variety of innovative and eclectic establishments. Their flair for California style mixed with fresh, high-quality ingredients sets the tone for many of the local restaurants, though you can still find plenty of high-quality traditional places, like steakhouses and great sushi.
