Santa Barbara is true California imagery, with oceanside beauty at the south end of the magnificent, but rugged Central Coast. The warm SoCal weather with the cool breezes & south facing waters. A beautifully developed downtown scene with a big emphasis on walking, restaurants & of course, tourism. Rugged shorelines to wide sandy beaches, marinas, seaside dining, train trestles & great surfing. Plenty State Parks, forests & State Beaches to enjoy.
description: The most beautiful city on the beach by far, Santa Barbara's history & culture is rich. Abundant restaurants, shops & galleries.
Downtown village warm & welcoming, shops, restaurants everywhere, but parking can be a hassle, so be prepared to walk several blocks.
Coastline with hillsides covered with red tiled roofs & more mansions. Palm trees & a historic mission grace this elegant little slice of paradise by the Pacific ocean.
