Downtown Santa Barbara is a world away and yet so close. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains and only a day trip from Los Angeles, its natural beauty and historic architecture have been protected for nearly two centuries. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, this central California coastal port is a relaxing rendezvous. Downtown Santa Barbara’s most famous Paseo, State Street, offers renowned architecture and an authentic sense of place, along with amazing shopping, and is a culinary paradise.
Since the days when early Hollywood stars and scions of industry frequented Santa Barbara beaches, this town has become an international tourist resort and summer playground for all. The promise of America’s Riviera beacons you to rediscover the never-ending charm of Downtown Santa Barbara.
