Santa Barbara,  California
Drive along Alameda Padre Serra, what locals call “the APS,” as the road winds into the foothills east of Mission Santa Barbara through the ritzy Riviera neighborhood, with views around each curve. Off the APS is Franceschi Park, with an amazing panorama of Santa Barbara and the Pacific, plus picnic tables, rare plants, winding paths, and the 19th-century house of Italian botanist Francesco Franceschi.
