Bucket list: See Jack Johnson play in a tropical place… check!
I have been a lover of Jack Johnson’s music since I was a freshman in high school. He is practically the soundtrack to my life. When I saw that he was touring this summer, I immediately booked tickets to his Santa Barbara show! My friend Lauren and I explored Los Angeles, Calabasas, Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach, the wineries in Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara. The best part of the whole trip, other than seeing Jack Johnson play, of course, was our incredible Airbnb! It was a glass cottage in nature paradise. Seriously. I loved living a minimalist life that week. No cell phone service, just us and nature. We felt so far from the world, but we were only 15 minutes from town. We cooked breakfast every morning in our outdoor kitchen and met cool new friends along the way. If you want the true Santa Barbara experience, check out this amazing Airbnb!
