Clairmont Lavender Farm, Los Olivos, Santa Barbara California


Clairmont Lavender Farm is idyllic in June or July. Waves of purple stretch out to the views of mountains and olive trees. Charming ironwork chairs beckon you to stay a while and pretend that you're in Provence. The gazebo under the huge oak tree is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the cool breeze. Kids enjoy "swimming" through the rows of organic lavender, playing around the statue of liberty and lion statues, and scooping up the excess lavendar bits around the grounds and tossing them to the sky to return as lavender rain. The owner is friendly and invites you to walk through the rows and explore. Kids enjoy bringing a purple sachet home for their closet and it'll make your car smell so good as you drive around the countryside. What a perfect day!
Spanish missionaries planted the glorious row of olive trees that line the driveway to Clairmont Farm. Also, some of the oak trees are three hundred years old.
After your time here, head over to downtown Santa Ynez, a cute town with old western buildings and beautiful Victorian houses. 
On your way to the lavender farm, stop and have a blast at the medieval-themed playground, Sunny Fields Park. You couldn't ask for a nicer playground. Also, check out the miniature horses at Quicksilver Ranch. If you're here in June or July (which you should be for the lavender) you may see baby horses stumbling around their mothers on wobbly legs- the cutest sight!
