It’s easy to see the allure of Santa Barbara: long stretches of tawny sand edging an expanse of ocean, an imposing backdrop of chaparral-covered mountains, and in between, a ribbon of land that is home to four exciting cities — Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito and Summerland. Santa Barbara and surrounding areas welcome families and individuals who enjoy the outdoors, sports, arts and culture, fine food and wine. There’s something for everyone… and three days will give you a chance to sample its charms.
