Join the Urban Hikers and Noozhawk for a New Year’s Eve Walkabout on Channel Drive in Montecito

As time winds down on 2015, a popular end-of-the-year tradition is the annual Urban Hikers New Year’s Eve Walking Tour of Santa Barbara, sponsored by Noozhawk.

This year, the Urban Hikers will lead 60 Noozhawk readers on a walkabout of the Channel Drive area of Montecito, including the historic Four Seasons Biltmore Resort, The Breakers, Butterfly Beach, the Music Academy of the West, the Coral Casino Beach & Cabana Club, and perhaps one or two little-known gems.

The free tour will begin at 2 p.m. Thursday at a TBA location nearby, and concludes in the vicinity of the Ty Lounge at the Biltmore — in time for the last sunset of 2015.

Click here to register for the tour.

Tour spots are limited. Details will be emailed Tuesday.

Bring your camera, wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather (As of now, the Dec. 31 forecast is for sunshine with high temperatures in the mid-60s.) Sorry, no pets.

Please use the hashtag #noozhawkwalks in your social media posts.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
