Day 1: To Santa Maria
Board your Lin Lines luxury motorcoach this morning and travel to Ventura Harbor Village where you will have time for lunch on your own and visit the various boutique shops, and stroll the harbor boardwalk. Continue through Santa Barbara County to Lompoc, known as the “Flower Seed Capital of the World.” Lompoc is also famous for the 40 murals on street corners, in alley ways, and on sides of prominent buildings. These murals have turned Old Town Lompoc into an awesome outdoor art gallery. Then, drive the short distance to Santa Maria where you will spend the next three nights at the Holiday Inn Santa Maria Hotel. Meet your fellow travelers at a “Welcome Dinner” at the hotel. (D)

Day 2: Coastal Cities
After a hearty Breakfast, drive north along the coast and make stops along the way to see some of the main attractions in each of the city/towns. You’ll visit Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Oceano and Guadalupe. Return to Santa Maria for an evening to enjoy Santa Maria-style barbecue, a regional culinary tradition rooted in the Santa Maria Valley on the Central Coast of California. (B, D)
Day 3: Santa Maria Valley Thanksgiving
Another leisurely Breakfast before you begin your day exploring the Santa Maria Valley, returning to celebrate this Day of Thanksgiving with a sumptuous Holiday Feast with Roast Turkey and all the traditional trimmings. (B, D)

Day 4: Solvang, Santa Barbara and Home
Enjoy your last group Breakfast before driving into the Santa Ynez Valley to visit Solvang, a Danish Village that is a special place for family reunions, peaceful get-aways, wine tasting, boutique shopping and sampling authentic Danish bakeries and International cuisine. Continue driving by Lake Cachuma and into Santa Barbara. You’ll see the venerable Santa Barbara Mission with her impressive twin towers, the wonderful Mediterranean architecture of the Santa Barbara Courthouse, and the huge Moreton Fig Tree. We’ll combine our lunch-stop with maybe a bit of shopping on this “Black Friday,” traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Then, we’ll head out for home. (B)
