About Santa Barbara

Introduction to Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara claims one of the most unique locations in Southern California, with the longest stretch of south-facing coastline. To the north of the town are the dramatic Santa Ynez Mountains, and to the south is the impossibly blue Pacific Ocean. Though the town has long been a desirable place to live, its tourism boom didn’t begin until the 1870s. Today, Santa Barbara is a resort town with plenty of local flavor.

When planning your vacation, finding Santa Barbara vacation rentals isn't as difficult as you might think. This sunny locale, often referred to as "The American Riviera" thanks in large part to its temperate climate and beautiful beaches, is home to many different types of rental homes to choose from for your next vacation. Framed by the Santa Ynez Mountains, you'll find something as unique as you are - from mountain chalets to beach cottages - in this Central Coast hot spot. Offering the best of cultural opportunities, outdoor activities, and family vacation options, as well as a plethora of dining, shopping, and entertainment options, this city is a spectacular place for a couple, family, or any group large or small. Santa Barbara house rentals can make your stay a treasured memory.

​Beach lovers will find a haven in Santa Barbara. Local beaches such as Miramar, Leadbetter Beach, and nearby Hendry's Beach in Arroyo Burro offer all things nautical - from bike-riding to surfing to just soaking up some rays, you'll find it here. Stroll along the Coastal Village of Montecito or Upper Village for fabulous shopping and dining or visit one of the area's many spas for a relaxing day to remember. Rent some wheels and enjoy the beaches in style at any one of Wheel Fun Rentals' three locations. Whale watching, paragliding, it's all here.

​Sports enthusiasts will enjoy spending time here, as well. With many golf courses, hiking trails, and more than 50 parks in the area, you'll want to spend as much time as you can soaking up the perfect weather. Glenn Annie Golf Club is an 18-hole world class championship course with commanding views of the Channel Islands while Rancho San Marcos, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. offers a par 71 on nearly 7,000 acres of unparalleled beauty.

Wine connoisseurs come from all over the world to sample some of the best of California wine-making. Santa Barbara vacation home rentals can make the trip even more special. Enjoy one of the many wine tasting tours of the coast, or attend one of the many wine festivals in the award winning area. DeeTours offers two different tours of the area, including a ride in a Jeep limo and a picnic lunch, while individual vineyards such as Firestone and Jaffurs offer their own unique tours. Santa Barbara, CA is also family friendly. Attractions such as the Museum of Natural History Mission make learning fun! But no visit to this city would be complete without a day at the Zoo. Ride the zoo train, take the elephant walk or be zoo keeper for a day. Make your next visit perfect by staying in one of the popular Santa Barbara vacation rentals.

Santa Barbara Climate

Like much of Southern California, Santa Barbara has a Mediterranean climate. Pacific breezes help keep the area warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so Santa Barbara’s average high temperature is about 75 degrees in the summer and 65 degrees in the winter months. Summer is the most popular time to visit Santa Barbara, since the warmer months tend to be much drier than the rainy winter months.

Getting Around in Santa Barbara

It’s easy to get to Santa Barbara from nearly anywhere with the Santa Barbara Airport, other nearby airports in Southern California, and Amtrak. It’s also easy to get from your Santa Barbara vacation rental to anywhere in town, whether you opt to drive, bike, or walk. For Santa Barbara’s downtown area, ride the town’s inexpensive shuttle. If you plan to go up in the mountains or head out on the beach, you can also rent mountain bikes or beach cruisers from local shops.

Hit the Beach

Santa Barbara has several major beaches, including East Beach, West Beach, and Leadbetter Beach. Head to the latter for fun at the harbor, and make your way to East Beach for a quieter experience. Catch some rays, take a dip, or join a beach volleyball game.

Experience History

The town boasts thousands of years of history, and you’ll find some of the most fascinating artifacts in Santa Barbara’s most prominent buildings. El Presidio de Santa Barbara, a restored military settlement, teaches visitors about the area’s 18th-century Spanish period, as well as its earlier Native American residents. Near State Street, the Santa Barbara Mission offers another look at the town’s early history and Spanish influence.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

When you visit Santa Barbara, be sure to stroll down State Street, which runs through downtown and ends at the waterfront. From hundreds of local boutiques, to dozens of restaurants, to art galleries and museums, there’s plenty to see, taste, and do. For nightlife, make your way to the festivities and bars congregated in the waterfront area of Lower State Street.

Whether you’re looking for fun in the sun, local history, or just a laid back coastal lifestyle, this town has it all. Find the Santa Barbara vacation rentals that fit your needs, and start planning your Southern California vacation today.
