15. Goleta, CA
Why go: Santa Barbara might be one of the main wine spots in Southern California, but Goleta is just 15 minutes away and still offers easy access to dozens of quintessential wineries. The temperature doesn’t drop below 65°F during the fall, so you can still go paddleboarding off the shores of Goleta Beach, surf the Campus Point break, and hike the nearby hills.
Where to stay: The Kimpton Goodland hotel is trendy in all the right ways—with its giant old-school airstream and in-lobby vinyl record shop. Each room features a record player, so you can listen to them on your own. Make sure to try the hotel’s signature Grapefruit IPA, which they made with local brewery M. Special.
