Its climate, topography, architecture and lifestyle of relaxed sophistication have inspired international recognition of Santa Barbara as “The American Riviera.” With its combination of superb year-round weather, cosmopolitan atmosphere, unsurpassed recreational activities and distinctive shopping, dining and cultural opportunities, the town has become both a singular destination for discriminating international travelers and a wonderful home for its just over 88,000 fortunate residents.
With the sparkling Pacific Ocean at its feet, Santa Barbara is nestled against a backdrop of the dramatic Santa Ynez Mountains. Its proximity to those natural blessings has made the town a playground for visitors and residents alike who enjoy an active lifestyle. From leisurely walks along its oceanfront boulevard, to all levels of hiking on its foothill and mountain trails, and from favored water sports such as surfing, snorkeling, sailing and more, to its excellent golf courses, tennis courts and more, Santa Barbara provides an abundance of options.
The internationally acclaimed Camerata Pacifica and Santa Barbara Symphony draw respected national and international musicians and conductors. The ballet, theater troupes and historical and art museums contribute to the area’s rich cultural opportunities, as do its internationally influenced festivals and celebrations. The annual, week-long “Old Spanish Days” Fiesta honors Santa Barbara’s heritage, its Summer Solstice Celebration, I Madonnari and International Film Festivals celebrate its artistic spirit, while its Greek, Jewish and French Festivals highlight the vivid, internationally-influenced lifestyle for which this dynamic community has gained worldwide acclaim. In 2013, Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) was named the #1 community college in the country by The Aspen Institute for outstanding academic performance. The highest scoring elementary school in the Santa Barbara Unified School District was Washington with a 2013 API score of 902.
