So I’m only 6 months late in posting this, but I graduated college in May 2018 and to celebrate, I went to California with my family. For a little over a week, we basked in the beauty of the beaches in Santa Barbara and of the mountains in Solvang and it. was. great.
In case y’all ever head over to either of those areas to visit, BE SURE to stop by Clairmont Lavender Farms, and most importantly: bring a picnic! Hands down, that was my favorite spot that we found, and would go there every single day if I had the chance to. It’s a beautiful little farm with the most kind & welcoming owner who made us feel right at home! It’s located just a few minutes from Solvang, and is a LOT less touristy + has tables for picnics + sells the most wonderful lavender chapstick + is every introvert’s dream spot.
A few other favorite spots:
Mission Street Ice Cream + Yogurt in Santa Barbara
Arroyo Burro Beach in Santa Barbara
