You haven't lived until you've lived in Santa Barbara. The beach is minutes from everything, people are diverse and friendly, and the food options are numerous. This is a great place to live or visit and to raise a family.

Home prices are through the roof, but that is the same all over the state. One of our favorite activities is the art walk which takes place on the beach each weekend. Locals sell goods all along the pathway, it's a great experience to shop at.
