About Santa Barbara

[WIP] Under Construction

The city of Santa Barbara, founded by the Spanish in the 18th century, is considered to be one of the jewels of the California coast. It lies approximately 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, nestled against the Santa Ynez mountains and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Photographs of the area may be found here, and here.

In July, the days are warm (70s) and the nights are normally cool (50s), with occasional morning fog. Nearby are many excellent ocean beaches, lakes, forests, mountains with varied hiking trails, and such man-made attractions as Hearst Castle, the flower fields of Lompoc, the Old World Danish Village of Solvang, the Santa Barbara Mission, Court House and other examples of Spanish architecture. There are also numerous excellent local wineries that offer wine tastings and tours.
