Santa Barbara’s idyllic setting has made it a favorite of celebrities for decades, with the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bridges, Rob Lowe, Kevin Costner, and Jack Johnson calling it home.

Plan a trip to the region’s world-renowned wine country or sample award-winning wines in tasting rooms downtown. Or be spontaneous and wander under a nearby portico for an escape into Mediterranean-style relaxation. This is Santa Barbara. It’s easy to be here. And now, it’s easy for you to get here.
