Long before cars were invented, the stagecoach stopped in Los Olivos on its regular route between Santa Barbara and points north. It’s still a tiny, rural town where the locals sit on porches and chat with friends, and horses trot in surrounding yards.
Within those Victorian facades, however, lie distinctly modern, upscale shops and services: art galleries, specialty shops, cafés and more than 30 wine tasting rooms.
Walk along Grand Avenue (the main drag) and poke around town. This is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner before, during or after wine touring.
