Noted as one of the 10 best climates in the world, the city of Santa Barbara enjoys 65 degree weather in the winter and spring, and 75 degree weather in the summer and fall. The city is located on a southward facing coastline. In the winter, the sun both rises and sets on the water for unbelievable sunrises and sunsets. It is no coincidence that this city is home to Brooks School of Photography, with all the stunning backdrops, nature settings and plant life. Just 20 miles off the coast is the Santa Barbara Islands, a haven for boaters looking for a peaceful anchorage. The city runs its own marina from which you can obtain a slip for your boat. The city is rich in history and heritage, with the Mission, many churches, the Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History and the Maritime Museum. A strict building department keeps building standards high. Santa Barbara has one of the nicest downtown areas around, with a plentitude of shops, restaurants and nightlife. Santa Barbara has everything that a big city has too offer, yet retains its quaint low key setting. The culture is laid back and much on its own pace. You don't have to worry about people honking horns when your late on the green light in this town.
Santa Barbara has one of the nicest airports around. It feels like you are getting off the plane on an island in the Carribean. Flights fly directly to Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and many other domestic cities.
