An easy 2 hour drive north form Los Angeles on coastal U.S. 101 and over dramatic San Marcos Pass on Highway 154 or south on U.S.101 from the bay area is the Santa Ynez Valley and internationally known wine regions. There are over 70 wineries and tens of thousands of acres of vineyards. Miles of country roads go through beautiful rolling countryside and coastal mountains. Restaurants and wine tasting venues are highly touted. The quaint towns of Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Solvang offer window shopping, tasting rooms and tons of charm. Area cycling is spectacular. Publicly accessed world class golf courses are less than a 30 minute drive and include Rancho San Marcos, La Purisima, the Alisal River Course and Sandpiper. Beaches within 20 to 30 minutes are in Santa Barbara or along the Gaviota Coast. The Chumash Casino and Resort offers gambling and full spa activities.
