Best of Santa Barbara: Beautiful Hammonds Beach in Montecito, California
One of my favorite memories from our Santa Barbara road trip was the first time I laid eyes on the Hammonds Meadow Trail. We pulled off of Eucalyptus Lane, stepped out of the car, walked up to the start of the Hammonds Meadow Trail, paused, and my jaw fell open. I wanted that moment to last forever.
The Hammonds Meadow trail leads to Hammonds Beach and it’s the most surreal, magical path I’ve ever walked. I promise I’m not exaggerating. Imagine bright blooms, flowering bushes, and large palm trees overhead. I’ve never seen a more beautiful path in my life. It was like something out of a storybook.
Take me back…now.
The Montecito Creek bridge runs between the beautiful Montecito homes and lush landscaping. It’s all so perfect.
