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.
