CLS Travels


a luxurious journey to one of California’s most popular vacation and resort destinations and you are invited to this open-to-the-public event! If you have ever attended an outing or trip organized by CLS, you already know this trip will be nothing less than first-class!

“Through a special giving-back mission, CLS will be partnering with local non-profit organizations to extend our reach as foot soldiers in the community to the Santa Barbara area. In keeping with our responsibility to be the change we want to see in the world, we will be assisting those organizations in furthering their worthy causes in the areas of girl/women empowerment, domestic violence, homelessness and human trafficking to name a few. Stay tuned for the details on this worthwhile mission in the community.”

About Santa Barbara (Overview)

The fabulous details in a nutshell

Centrally located along the Pacific Coast of California, Santa Barbara is known for its beautiful beaches, tourist attractions and resorts.

With the Santa Ynez Mountains rising in view in the distance, the tranquil waters of the Pacific Ocean within reach, and a warm summer climate likened to that of the Mediterranean, Santa Barbara is truly a wonderful choice – get there and relax, revive, rejuvenate and replenish during our CLS Travels retreat.

Santa Barbara has so much to offer – museums, beautiful Spanish architecture, wineries, biking and hiking trails, hundreds of restaurants and shops, whale watching, sunset cruises and more!

Something for everyone – something for you!
