Fun Things To Do In Santa Barbara, CA

Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Santa Barbara Tourism and Sightseeing
Perpetually laidback Santa Barbara is a city of white-washed buildings and red-tiled roofs, tucked between the mountains and the sea, resonating with an irresistible allure. Santa Barbara’s architectural style is iconic, and our coastal enclave is equally well known for its pedestrian-friendly downtown, historic buildings and hotels, cultural events and festivals, lush public parks and gardens, miles of beaches and welcoming locals. Above all else, Santa Barbara knows how to celebrate the art of good living. Foodies sip and savor the region’s eccentric mix of cuisine accompanied by superb local wines. Visitors delight in our Spanish-influenced architecture and the diversity of our arts and culture. Everyone enjoys our 300 days of sunshine a year and nearly limitless opportunities for outdoor fun. And those who tread lightly while traveling appreciate our dedication to sustainable tourism. Santa Barbara is contrast and complement, natural art and human art, the simple and sophisticated, the old world and the new. It is The American Riviera®.  Skip to Best Places to Stay.
