Santa Barbara

lodginglodging reservations in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is true California imagery, with oceanside beauty at the south end of the magnificent, but rugged Central Coast. The warm SoCal weather with the cool breezes & south facing waters. A beautifully developed downtown scene with a big emphasis on walking, restaurants & of course, tourism. Rugged shorelines to wide sandy beaches, marinas, seaside dining, train trestles & great surfing. Plenty State Parks, forests & State Beaches to enjoy.

    The most beautiful city on the beach by far, Santa Barbara's history & culture is rich. Abundant restaurants, shops & galleries.
    Downtown village warm & welcoming, shops, restaurants everywhere, but parking can be a hassle, so be prepared to walk several blocks.
    Coastline with hillsides covered with red tiled roofs & more mansions. Palm trees & a historic mission grace this elegant little slice of paradise by the Pacific ocean.
