This Little Bit of Heaven Has Everything

California's Carpinteria State Beach is a popular coastal camping spot southeast of Santa Barbara. When day trippers leave, campers can enjoy empty stretches of sand and the sounds of crashing surf. There are hiking and biking trails with beautiful views of the Santa Ynez Mountains on one side and the Channel Islands on the other.

Orchid fans can get an eyeful at the area's Gallup & Stribling Orchid Farm, billed as the largest orchid-growing operation in the U.S.
