Santa Barbara City Tour

Chumash Indians and European settlers marked the earliest days of the Santa Barbara area. Santa Barbara was also the center of the U.S. silent film industry from 1910 to 1922, long before anyone associated the name "Hollywood" with movies. Today, Santa Barbara has evolved into a world-class vacation destination in the heart of Southern California. The combination of ocean and mountain views, moderate climate and unique living style are truly something special. A wide variety of excellent Santa Barbara restaurant and hotel choices is available all year long. Spanish red-tile architecture can be seen among the Santa Barbara Riviera and throughout this unique coastal landscape. Many outdoor activities including hiking, biking and swimming remind locals and visitors alike why Santa Barbara is the number one California vacation destination.
