Named one of the “Top Small Cities in the U.S.” in the 2017 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, Santa Barbara has been considered “The American Riviera®” for more than a century. A self-contained paradise surrounded by undeveloped coastline, the city’s signature red-tile roofs, white-washed buildings and lush gardens evoke the topography and architectural aesthetic of the European Riviera—with a distinctly Californian twist. Simultaneously sophisticated and bohemian, easy-going and energetic, Santa Barbara revives visitors with its vibrant arts and entertainment scene, inviting resorts and hideaways, abundant outdoor adventures, bucolic wine country and hyper-local culinary scene.

Santa Barbara is located just 92 miles north of Los Angeles along California’s Central Coast. Visitors can arrive via scenic Highway 101, train, bus or by flying into Santa Barbara Municipal Airport (SBA) or Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
