We are on our first real road trip in over a year. We were just about to check out of our plush hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara (full disclosure: they hosted us) when I received an email from Travelzoo with the subject line: Santa Barbara: Beach Stays & Sunny Days, 33% Off.

How fortuitous! My wife and I were really skeptical, nervous and hesitant to go away but we were forced to as our house needed emergency electrical repairs and we didn’t want to be in the house all day with a number of workers. Between COVID and the amount of dust, we decided it was safer for us and our children to leave the house.
