A TOUR OF SANTA BARBARA (AND TY WARNER’S HOUSE)

Santa Barbara has a lot of things to see and to help you see them, the town has trollies that take you to one worth-seeing-site to another. You can get off when you want and on when you want.

Ok, second thought, not all the sites were worth seeing – like the country club where Kim K. had her wedding reception. No pictures there.

Anyhow, we rode around as the friendly trolley driver/tour guide (another person from Chicago) told us all the little factoids about Santa Barbara – and also about his life. And about how Ty Warner (of Beanie Baby fame) was building a house there in Montecito.

We drove down windy roads and then past the Montecito Inn which was built by Charlie Chaplin in 1928 and is the inspiration for the Rodgers and Hart song “There’s a Small Hotel.”  Although the inn has been remodeled several times since Charlie was there – it is still (so we were told) filled with Chaplin memorabilia including a film library.

And then by the place where Ty Warner of Beanie Baby fame was building his house and then we went around some more roads.

And pass the place where Ty Warner of Beanie Baby fame was building his house.

We then headed downtown away from Ty Warner’s house and got off at a site-worth-seeing.
