What’s December like in Santa Barbara? Think fewer layers and more beach days, with a relaxed pace that keeps spirits bright. Imagine palm trees and Santa with a sophisticated twist. We invite you to celebrate the season in a special place, one that’s covered in sunshine with much to see and do. From holiday shopping and seasonal performances to signature parades and leisurely beach days, Santa Barbara is your winter playground.
