The Santa Barbara Riviera represents the Santa Barbara dream, like the oceanfront in Italy, a place where one lives in the foothills just blocks from downtown, offering city and ocean views, winding streets and many properties boasting mature landscaping.
Any day in the Santa Barbara Riviera can easily become a five-star fest of outdoor recreation. Biking, hiking, surfing, sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, beach combing, an exploratory trip to Channel Islands National Park, and sailing all make the Santa Barbara outdoor bucket list.
This is a very popular area within Santa Barbara, near the Mission and just down the hill to all that Santa Barbara has to offer.
Stone work, Spanish tiled roofs, secret lanes and modest to significant estates are scattered along this special part of Santa Barbara.
