The streets of Santa Barbara

Slaiden One 1-18

When I’m traveling to a new city, my favorite way to explore is to either drive or walk around in the city. Tours and touristic attractions can be so much fun, but they often don’t give you the opportunity to be creative as a photographer. Most of the time, I’m not really interested in photographing the touristic attractions. I mean, when you’re in Paris, you need that picture of you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and when you’re in New York City, you obviously need a picture of you standing on Times Square. I’m like that! I want a picture of myself standing in front of something that makes people know in which city you are.

What I love more about exploring a new city is to wander through the streets and discover those little details that make you really love a city. Santa Barbara is such a beautiful place to go. It reminded me of Europe though. All the buildings were pretty and the streets were very organized.

What’s your favorite way to explore a city? Let me know in the comments below! πŸ˜‰

      You would be a great travel partner then! Although I do like to do some research before I go somewhere! Reading blogs about the places I visit is my favorite thing to do!

    My hubby and I love to explore local streets. We try to stay away from the tourist crowds and look for the places actual people live. I prefer exploring on foot…and have met some very charming and interesting people that way.

    Lovely photos…thank you for sharing.
