It’s no wonder Santa Barbara real estate is coveted around the world considering the area’s superb climate, wealth of cultural activities, recreational offerings and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It’s simply a place unequalled in North America.
Resting peacefully yet dramatically between the Santa Ynez Mountains and a beautiful stretch of the dazzling Pacific Ocean, enchanted Santa Barbara hosts approximately 90,000 residents and provides Mediterranean ambiance with its temperate weather, Spanish-influenced architecture, superb dining, world-renowned wine country and diverse, sophisticated resident and visitor populations.
Culturally blessed, Santa Barbara is home to a symphony orchestra, ballet and theater troupes, art and historical museums, and public and private universities and colleges. There is seemingly no end to the area’s recreational activities which include golf, tennis, hiking and bicycling, as well as water sports such as swimming, sailing and surfing. This place is also a paradise for shoppers, art lovers and foodies.
Santa Barbara is also known for its celebrations of life and culture. The week-long “Old Spanish Days” Fiesta, a lively Summer Solstice Celebration and the Santa Barbara International Film and I Madonnari Festivals epitimize the multi-cultural lifestyle and ambiance of this dynamic community.
