3 Must Do’s When Hosting Visitors in the 805

Living in Southern California, you get a LOT of visitors. And living in Southern California, there’s a LOT to see and do. When you have visitors in town, it can be difficult to narrow it all down to just a few “must see” spots. We recently had Luke’s mom and sister in town from Wisconsin, and of course, high on their list of to-do’s was beach, wine tasting and shop.

So difficult to do in the 805, right?! HAHA not at all 🙂

Here’s a look at a few of our fave “go-to/must-see” local spots for out-of-towner guests:

7 Reasons Why Brunch is a MUST at Outpost {The Goodland in Goleta}

As soon as we drove up to The Goodland Hotel located in beautiful Goleta, just miles north of downtown Santa Barbara, we were instantly obsessed. And I mean, instantly. Everything from the font used on their signage, the dreamy airstream trailers and green grass lawn out front, the eclectic decor and vibrant colors all throughout, the laid-back Southern California facade that transports you to a swank yet breezy Palm Springs hotel in the 70’s — yeah, I’d say The Goodland had me at hello.

Oysters + Martinis = the Happiest of Hours {The Gallery Restaurant, Westlake}

This is definitely not the case at The Gallery Restaurant, located at The Shoppes at Westlake. The Gallery is a casual, yet elegant restaurant that boasts specialty cocktails and a gourmet menu which will leave you feeling more than content.The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake - Shoppes at Westlake - bar - happy hour - LocalLove805 The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake …

Tunes & Tastings {Whizin Market Square}

Every Thursday from 4-8pm, the Whizin Market Square in Agoura Hills is hosting a Tunes & Tastings event featuring artisanal food pairings and performances from local musicians and artists.

We love the idea of exploring the Whizin Market Square’s different boutique shops while enjoying small bites and beverages made from fresh local ingredients!  It’s a great opportunity to try something new, as well as support local businesses and artists (which we are all about).

The shopping center’s restaurants will be offering happy hour specials as well.  For more info on these events check out their event page here.
