Santa Barbara

Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is situated on a south-facing section of glorious Pacific Ocean coastline, nestled against the steeply rising Santa Ynez Mountains. With its Mediterranean climate, golden beaches, and passion for cuisine, culture, and the arts, Santa Barbara is a coveted vacation destination.

With its abundance of seafood and nearby wineries, Santa Barbara offers a rich array of culinary pleasures to its guests. Arts and culture also abound. Considered a haven for lovers of classical music, both a symphony orchestra and an opera company call Santa Barbara home, along with many non-profit classical music groups and the Music Academy of the West’s annual summer festival. Santa Barbara contains numerous performing art venues and serves as the setting for the world-famous Santa Barbara International Film Festival each January. Nationally and internationally recognized collections and exhibits are housed in the acclaimed Santa Barbara Museum of Art, while various other museums and galleries enrich and fascinate visitors. In addition to the city’s cultural assets, several iconic destinations lie within the city’s limits, Mission Santa Barbara, “The Queen of the Missions”, The Santa Barbara County Courthouse, and The Presidio of Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara is a year-round tourist destination with an abundance of outdoor activities and adventures to enjoy, including a wealth of hiking trails, some traversing the mountains with breathtaking ocean views. Renowned for its fair weather and downtown beaches, surfing is as much a part of Santa Barbara culture as art. Bruce Brown, of The Endless Summer fame, is often seen around town, as well as surfing legends Pat Curren, Tom Curren, Kelly Slater, and Jack Johnson. There’s definitely something in the water and you’ll want to be sure to experience it for yourself.
