The city of Santa Barbara has one of the prettiest spots along
California’s coastline. Many famous people build homes here – for
good reason; it is near-paradise. A dry, sunny climate with
extremely blue skies, rugged mountain peaks, Spanish mission
architecture, a major university and miles of beachfront.
Barbara is isolated by its geography, Santa Barbara is proud of its unique
identity and relaxed lifestyle. Visitors to the city will want to
see Santa Barbara Mission, the architecturally-controlled downtown and
elegant shopping/dining district and Stearns Wharf, the large pier at
the base of State Street.
