To us, culture is more than something you see. It's exploring every sight, sound, and savor that’s waiting for you around each corner. The culture of the Santa Barbara South Coast will radiate your senses full of seaside artistry and passion. From the fresh cut flowers of Carpinteria to the historic landmarks of Santa Barbara to the scholarly traditions of Goleta, the Santa Barbara South Coast is a portrait of harmony and rhythm that’s painted within each of our 5 unique cities, all within reach, and just off Highway 101. And, with over 101 ways to enjoy, let passion be your guide. Go on, explore. The stage is set for a performance that will enchant your senses from the opening scene to last call.
