East Beach Tacos is a cute little taco shop a little off the beaten path near Santa Barbara's Funk Zone. It's still walkable from the Funk Zone, but it's not right in the mix. They have a great selection of all types of tacos, like bahn mi and spicy crisp shrimp. The best was the poke taco! Great find! I highly recommend riding bikes here on a sunny southern California day for lunch. Not expensive, and very delicious.

Valentine's Day is coming up, so I've collected a few romantic weekend getaway ideas for you. The 3 locations below are perfect places to relax and unwind for a short trip from Los Angeles whether you want to wine taste, star gaze, or hang out poolside.
Santa Barbara is a quick two hour drive from L.A.. Better yet, you can take the Surfliner, a train that goes through a lot of California’s major coastal cities. The Pacific Surfliner drops you off in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, a wino’s dream.
