We have visited most of the missions in California and have enjoyed the history of them. The Santa Barbara mission is a good one to visit because you can get a good feel of the history and how it might have been living 200 years ago. While each mission is different there is a basic theme. So if you are into history this is a must stop if you are not then there are many other attractions in the area. The mission tour guide was very knowledgeable and well worth while. The church is still active and the facilities are in good shape. Also the area is pure California which makes for a beautiful setting. It takes about two hours to properly visit the mission and well worth it.
