Santa Barbara Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Santa Barbara, California - CA, USA)

Just up from Los Angeles and occupying a scenic setting on what is described as California's Central Coast, Santa Barbara is understandably a hugely popular destination for tourists from all over the world. With architecture that often wouldn't look out of place in a small Spanish town and a dreamy coastline, this busy city also offers themed museums, a landscaped botanic garden and a historic wooden pier, complete with shops and eateries boasting oceanfront views.

East Beach and West Beach sit either side of Santa Barbara Harbor, while Shoreline Park lies further to the west, along with the Arroyo Burro Beach County Park. Boat trips to the nearby islands of Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa (home of the Channel Islands National Park) may also be of interest if you are vacationing here.
