Santa Barbara Visitor Information
Visit Santa Barbara at any time of year and experience the legacies of our colorful history. See our rich Spanish heritage in the city’s distinctive architecture, the cobbled pathways, red tile roofs, and mission-style adobes. Explore the western-style towns of Los Olivos and Santa Ynez or relive the county’s cultural history at one of our many fascinating museums. Visit the quaint Danish village of Solvang with its windmills and timbered Tudor facades. In Santa Barbara County, history whispers from every corner.

Santa Barbara County is famous around the world for its breathtaking setting. Natural beauty beams from the dramatic mix of mountains, valleys, beaches, islands, and the sea. Inspired perhaps by this ravishing scenery, Santa Barbara County’s cultural arts scene is one of our star attractions. Visitors can enjoy world-class performances of music, opera, dance, and theater year round. Santa Barbara is also a hotbed for the visual arts with a reputation as one of the top five art colonies in the West.
