Santa Barbara Travel Resources

Santa Barbara is located in the Central Coast area of California, and has been called by some the most beautiful city in America.

The weather in Santa Barbara always seems to be perfect; it doesn’t get too cold in the winter, and in the summer there is generally a nice and calm cooling breeze off the Pacific to offset the heat.

One of the most common reasons so many people travel vacation in Santa Barbara is the amazing beaches! It almost feels like there’s enough beaches in Santa Barbara so that every vacationing family can have their own beach; there’s Hendry Beach, Butterfly Beach, Carpinteria State and City Beaches, East Beach, El Capitan Beach, Gaviota Beach, Goleta Beach, Leadbetter Beach, Refugio Beach and West Beach. Leadbetter Beach might be the best beach to bring the family since there is plenty to keep the kids busy.

Talk about a plethora of restaurants! Santa Barbara has over 700 separate restaurants, so you’ll definitely find something you and the family will enjoy. In recent years, there has been a clear effort to concentrate on the ‘farm to table’ movement, and that’s reflected in many of the new establishments.

Santa Barbara is one of those special places where the moment you step foot in town, you realize what all the fuss was about. Use the Travel Resources below to help plan your trip to Santa Barbara!
