Why go to just one restaurant when you can go to a whole bunch, trying out delicious dishes all for a fraction of the price? Santa Barbara Tasting Tours wants to give you the run of Santa Barbara, a quickly growing foodie paradise.

During this walking tour, you'll stop for tastings at six different shops and restaurants, tasting and experiencing some of the best dishes, ambience, and service in California. Among the options are French pastries, Italian, gourmet cheese, local wine, hand-crafted chocolates, and Eastern deli-fare.

The route vary based on what's in season, but many tours make stops at the Santa Barbara Public Market, as well as other shopping areas in El Paseo and La Arcada. So you'll not only be able to fill your tummy, but you can also fill up a shopping cart for future tummy filling. Now that's what we call a good investment.
