Basking in the glow of the brilliant Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara area is one of California's most vibrant and beautiful communities. Santa Barbara's alluring landscape is enhanced by the red-tiled roofs, foliage of its Spanish heritage, the striking backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and the majestic palm trees lining the beach of this stunning coastal city.

This refined city is home to more than 90,000 residents who enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, balmy weather, beautiful real estate, and cultural gems that this town has to offer, such as the beautiful Santa Barbara Botanic Garden and the historic landmark Santa Barbara Mission. The ocean also lends itself to those wishing to surf or take a pleasure cruise from the harbor.

Santa Barbara is home to several of California's renowned secondary education institutions. The most prominent is the University of California, Santa Barbara. Residents and visitors alike are welcome to tour the picturesque college and attend the various concerts, lectures, and sporting events hosted by the campus. Other institutions include Westmont College and the Brooks Institute of Photography. Younger students have access to a distinguished public and private school system.

While having all the attractions and accommodations of a large city, Santa Barbara maintains a charming small town feeling with its close knit community and cheerful neighborhoods. Residents maintain an active role, and take pride, in keeping their city a beautiful and unique place to live and work.

From Alaska to Cap Horn – the entire length of the western hemisphere’s Pacific Coast – there is only one stretch of east-west shoreline:  the 60-mile length from Point Conception to Carpinteria.  So Santa Barbara’s beaches actually face south (not west like the rest of the California coastline).  It is this unique south exposure, along with the east-west direction of the Santa Ynez Mountains behind Santa Barbara, plus the shelter offered by the Channel Islands of Santa Barbara’s coast, that contributes to the City’s celebrated Mediterranean climate.
