After a week, smoggy Los Angeles seems full of snarling attack dogs and urbanites ready to carve out your liver over a parking space. But drive north of Santa Barbara where the air is clear and you’ll see hikers on cliffs at sunset, parents with babies in backpacks, ball-chasing Labrador retrievers, and unattended bicycles—especially at Montaña de Oro State Park. Its rocky azure coves feel like Greece; the sandwiched cliffs jutting out over the ocean remind you of Cornwall; and the long sand dunes resemble Provincetown on the Cape. With 7 miles of spectacular coast, this is one of California’s largest state parks.
