Santa Barbara, California
About Santa Barbara, California
Santa Barbara is a city on the central California coast, with the Santa Ynez Mountains as dramatic backdrop and the Pacific Ocean stretching out before it. Downtown, Mediterranean-style white stucco buildings with red-tile roofs reflect the city’s Spanish colonial heritage. Upscale boutiques and restaurants offering local wines and seasonal fare line State Street. On a nearby hill, Mission Santa Barbara, founded in 1786, houses Franciscan friars and a museum.
