Update On Popular Southern California Vacation Spots
Between November and December, viewers watched the southern California wildfires burn through thousands of acres of land for weeks at a time. For some popular vacation areas such as San Diego County, nearly all of the resorts, hotels, restaurants, and other attractions have reopened and are ready for guests to return. Some took longer than others, but there was a sense of normalcy restored to these areas right before the holidays.
Unfortunately, areas like Ventura and Santa Barbara had a harder time reopening. It’s no surprise that with poor air quality, road closures, closed attractions, spot fires, and many hotels being used for evacuees and first responders, majority of vacationers canceled their southern California vacation rentals and timeshares. According to the Visit Santa Barbara website, there were many areas of the city that are difficult to get to or closed due to the conditions the Thomas Fire has caused. Luckily, it has been stopped and Santa Barbara is back to business as usual with clear skies.
