Visit Santa Barbara


Why Choose Our Destination?

Nestled between a dramatic mountain range and the sparkling sea, Santa Barbara has been considered “The American Riviera®” for over a century—a nickname inspired by the coastal setting and the city’s signature red-tile roofs and white-washed buildings. Santa Barbara is what happens when you blend old Hollywood glamour with a sophisticated Mediterranean aesthetic and California’s beach-y, bohemian sensibility. Simultaneously easygoing and energetic, earthy and elegant, The American Riviera® is truly a place to revive. Santa Barbara hotels can accommodate groups as small as 10 to upwards of 800. Alternative meeting and event spaces embrace the region’s rich cultural heritage, and the variety of settings is a creative director’s dream. Think elegant private estates, historic theaters, verdant vineyards, rustic ranches, deluxe catamarans, lush polo fields and a zoo with a view. And that’s just the starting point.
