It is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains, making it the perfect place for outdoor activities like surfing, biking, hiking, diving, SUP, sailing, fishing all year round.

Only 90 miles north of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara is a safe and welcoming community. It has a vibrant downtown area full of friendly restaurants, shopping districts, theaters, and nightlife. Of course, only a few miles up the freeway, UC Santa Barbara maintains a picturesque university campus; the only one in the US with its own beach!
