Many people have described Santa Barbara, California as paradise. Situated between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara has something for everybody in its almost 42 square miles. You can hike up in the mountains and feel like you are in a different world, spend time playing at the beach, or enjoy some of the many restaurants the city has to offer (Ask a local like Ian Filippini for the best spot in town).
Santa Barbara is known for many things; it’s beauty, nature, diversity, culture, educational opportunities, wine, and history. In this article, I will touch on just a few of the wonderful things Santa Barbara has to offer. To really understand and appreciate the beauty of this city, you must experience it for yourself.
From the rose gardens at the Santa Barbara Mission, to the sands of Butterfly Beach, Santa Barbara definitely has a lot of beautiful scenery all around. The wonderfully mild climate in Santa Barbara allows its residents and visitors to enjoy its outdoor beauty during most of the year. If you are ever in Santa Barbara visiting, or live here and just want to do a little sightseeing, the Landshark is a great tour to go on (Also a favorite of Ian Filippini and his Nephew Drew). This tour will show you the beauty of Santa Barbara’s land and sea (and you will learn a lot about the city’s history too)!
There are many performing arts venues in Santa Barbara. The Lobero, Granada and Arlington theaters are just a few of the places you can find wonderful acting, dancing and singing performances all year round. It can be great fun for people of all ages!
Many people think of college when they think of Santa Barbara. This may be because Santa Barbara has many higher education institutions. Not only is there The University of California at Santa Barbara, but there is Santa Barbara City College, Westmont College, Antioch University and several other colleges and universities also. Ian Filippini can also help with planned giving to local Santa Barbara education centers.
Perhaps one of the tastiest things about Santa Barbara is the wonderful wine that comes from nearby Santa Ynez! There are many great wineries to visit and have tastings at all throughout the Santa Barbara area.
