Introducing Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara is milk and honey. Poised, pristine, and cultured, it’s the quintessential California dream town. The sublime location and blissful Mediterranean climate certainly doesn’t hurt its case either. Nestling in the foothills of the majestic Santa Ynez mountains, bounded by sandy Pacific beaches lined with palm trees, Santa Barbara is, unquestionably, one of the most beautiful West Coast towns. From the palatial courthouse and colonial-style, white stucco homes laced with arabesques of wrought iron, to the upscale boutiques and chic cocktail bars of State Street, or the impassioned arias of the Santa Barbara Symphony at the opulent Granda Theater, Santa Barbara exudes style and substance in every quarter. At the Santa Barbara Harbor, regional gastronomy reaches its zenith with ranch raised beef and über fresh seafood paired with world class Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from the Santa Ynez Valley. For more verve, there’s a piquant taste of Mexicali with taquerías, food trucks, and storefronts. When it’s time to burn off the calories, dozens of hiking trails crisscross the valley. You can hike the Douglas Family Preserve for glorious ocean views or negotiate the hills of the Cold Spring loop trail behind Montecito.
