Goleta

Nicknamed “The Good Land” for a reason, Goleta is home to lush lemon groves, healthy farmlands, championship golf courses and several significant public parks. One such park, the Ellwood Mesa Open Space, is home to the Goleta Butterfly Grove, famous for the stunning showcase performed by the region’s Monarch Butterflies.

Montecito

An enchanting land of supreme California beauty. Whether it’s Butterfly Beach or the mesmerizing gardens of Lotusland, everything about Montecito is gorgeous. This is the place to go and enjoy the outdoors with the locals – either on a paddle board, a sailboat or simply strolling along Coast Village Road and the Upper Village.

Summerland

The name says it all. Summerland is the place to escape for a day of pure California outdoor grandeur. Mountain bikers spend the day riding through 10 miles of trees, rocks and ridges of Romero Canyon Loop. And romance seekers take their time peering over the Pacific from Lookout Park, only to finish the day in a quaint, tucked-away B&B.
