Commonly called the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is nestled between the beautiful Santa Ynez Mountains and the stunning clear blue shores and white sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara is considered one of the best cities in California. Known for many historical sites, Mission Santa Barbara is an example of 18th-century religious architecture, boasting beautiful grounds and a wonderfully detailed interior. There are several popular hiking trails, golf courses, bike trials, and shopping opportunities to work up an appetite as you stroll along the beautiful and popular State Street. The variety of restaurants, shops and pubs are exceptional. Beauty abounds everywhere from the ocean-side Shoreline Park, to the zoo, historical museums, art galleries, and botanical gardens.
Housing opportunities include several mansions, historical homes on the Riviera, the communities of San Roque and the Mesa and ranch style homes and condominiums.
