Welcome to Santa Barbara
The American Riviera
It is no surprise that many well traveled individuals with the means to live anywhere in the world choose to call Santa Barbara “home”.
This picturesque city with a European vibe is ideally perched between a majestic 5000 foot mountain range and a south facing coast with miles of sandy beaches. Combine this with year-round Mediterranean style weather and you have the perfect playground for every outdoor sport and activity imaginable.
It offers many of the cultural, entertainment and culinary amenities of a much larger city along with the relaxed small town lifestyle that Santa Barbara is famous for. Favorite local hangouts include the Santa Barbara Harbor & West Beach where boating, surfing, volleyball & beach walks happen daily; The Funk Zone complete with wine-tasting rooms, craft breweries and lively restaurants; The Old Mission & Rose Garden which is the central gathering spot for picnics, recreation and festivals.
