Santa Barbara, California. Known to many as the “American Riviera,” Santa Barbara is located along the coast of California, just 100 miles north of Los Angeles. With a mild, Mediterranean climate, Spanish mission style architecture, a vibrant art community, and scenic mountains leading to a spectacular coastline with miles of public sandy beaches, Santa Barbara is a popular tourist destination offering visitors a unique blend of incredible natural beauty, fascinating history, fun events, festivals, outdoor activities, and family friendly attractions.
