Explore The

Santa Barbara South Coast

A tight-knit collection of coastal California cities. Overlooking unique beaches that face south into the Pacific. Culture, farm-to-table cuisine, outdoor adventure, unforgettable romance, shopping & sightseeing. The story is yours. This is where it begins.

Explore Our Cities

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.

Santa Barbara

The centerpiece of The American Riviera®. With red tiles for miles and miles. Historic Landmarks. Captivating parks. And a downtown anchored by State Street’s European ambience. Dotted with courtyards, fountains, locavore dining, premier shopping and the much loved Urban Wine Trail. Lodging ranges from convenient and affordable to 5-star elegance.

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.

Carpinteria

The organic side of The American Riviera®. Without Carpinteria, the slow-food movement of Santa Barbara simply wouldn’t be. Host city of the California Avocado Festival, which draws more than 80,000 visitors annually. Also home to amazing overlooks at the Carpinteria Bluffs where it’s famous for its harbor seal rookery and the world’s safest beach.
