SANTA BARBARA

With distinctive Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and its many derivatives, Santa Barbara’s natural boundaries cradle it like a crown jewel.

Welcome to Santa Barbara

Tucked in between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains, it’s a unique coastal experience. With distinctive Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and its many derivatives, Santa Barbara’s natural boundaries cradle it like a crown jewel in California’s coastline. Whether arriving via boat, into the world-class harbor, or arriving by private plane to the charming airport, picturesque white stucco architecture and red-tile roofs greet you.
 
Inhabited by the native Chumash Indians for thousands of years, it wasn’t until the late 1700s when Spanish missionaries and European settlers arrived and established permanent residences. The Santa Barbara mission is one example of the famous structures they began building.
 
Also known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is unparalleled in arts and culture. On the north end of State Street in downtown Santa Barbara, is a thriving collection of chic restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques. Referred to as the Theater District, it includes the Santa Barbara Symphony, ballet company, art museum, and the world-renowned, historical Granada, Arlington, Lobero, and Victoria Street theaters variety enough to satisfy even the most discriminating palette.
 
Wide tiled paseos, romantic beachside hotels, nightclubs, eclectic eateries, Stearns Wharf, and Santa Barbara Harbor grace the south end. Just blocks from the beach is “the Funk Zone,” a trendy neighborhood with micro-breweries, wineries, tasting rooms, gourmet pop-up restaurants, and art galleries. Palm trees and lush tropical plant varieties on every street create unmatched vibrancy.
With exceptional year-round weather and a casual lifestyle, Santa Barbara has something to offer everyone. Easy access to the ocean and mountains offers exhilarating outdoor experiences, while the delightful culture of local food, wine, and arts provides incredible variety. Santa Barbara, a Mediterranean-style paradise, is the ideal place to call home.
