Travel + Leisure magazine recently described Los Alamos as “the best place to go wine tasting in California” and praised its “decidedly chill vibe.”According to Thrillist, Los Alamos is now known as “Little LA” because so many Angelenos have moved here. And we don’t blame them. We agree with Thrillist’s assertion that Los Alamos is one of California’s “most underrated spots for wine, dining, and Old West ambiance.” But Los Alamos isn’t only a great travel destination; it’s also a lovely place to live, thanks to its setting at the gateway to the Santa Ynez Valley. Today, the town blends the old and the new, with boutiques, galleries, and restaurants occupying the historic buildings along the seven blocks of Bell Street in the town center. If you can’t get enough of the Old West, don’t miss Los Alamos Old Days, an annual celebration of the town’s heritage, which takes place every year during the last weekend of September.
