Santa Barbara Walking History Tour
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

More than 100 so-called urban hikers joined in a stroll from the Old Mission in Santa Barbara to the Presidio.

The third-annual event, sponsored by Noozhawk, was inspired by close friends Peter Hartmann and Stacey Wright.

The duo have walked every street in Santa Barbara.  When friends asked to join them, they created this annual New Year's Eve event.

The two-mile walk downhill covered plenty of historic ground. Historians stopped the group along the way to share bits of Santa Barbara history.
