The beaches of Santa Barbara are dazzling, but the city's architecture can be just as alluring. Watch "Beyond the Rooftops: Santa Barbara's Red Tile Walking Tour," a new video podcast from the Santa Barbara Conference and Visitors Bureau, and see for yourself. The 16-minute video takes you on a tour of the city's Spanish architecture, highlighting its 17th and 18th century abodes and other historic buildings. The tour comprises 12 walkable blocks and 17 stops in downtown, including El Paseo, one of the first shopping malls in California, and El Cuartel, the oldest existing adobe in Santa Barbara. As an added bonus, John O'Hurley, who played the quirky J. Peterman on TV's "Seinfeld," narrates the tour. The podcast comes with a handy map that helps you navigate Santa Barbara's streets when you take the tour. The map and podcast can be downloaded at www.santabarbaraca.com/podcasts.
