SB to Goleta on a Tues AM

From rural IL so not used to traffic. Wanting to go horseback riding at 930 at Circle Bar B on a Tuesday. Says ot will take 30 min from where staying at lemon tree inn in SB and shows us going up 101. We need to ne there by 910am. Will there be a lot of traffic going N on 101 around 830 am? Should we leave way earlier or go a different way? Thanks!!

Most of the traffic will be heading south, so 30 minutes is a decent time estimate, but it never hurts to add a bit of cushion to the drive. Maybe give yourself 40 minutes

30 minutes is pretty tight. Traffic will be easy once you get past Goleta, but getting out of the hotel and onto the freeway could take a bit of time. After the ride is over, go visit Refugio State Beach. It's really pretty and you can walk for miles along the sand! (or cool off in the ocean)
