    Best deal for beach view


    The Ala Mar Motel is located directly across from the beach and the famous Santa Barbara Wharf and pier. Great location for all beach activities. It is also walking distance to state street and all the happenings downtown. The ideal place to be during July 4th weekend. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. The very best part is the price. Though somewhat pricey on average, for $120.00 per night, this will be the best deal you can get for direct beach access. Also has a killer sundeck to chill, have a beer and watch the waves.

    Directions: Located on the corner of West Cabrillo Boulevard and Chapala.

summer housing in isla vista

by grolsh66

Myself and three of my friends are going to california for the summer and are looking for a house to rent. I've been told that isla vista in santa barbara is the place to be!

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell me how I would go about getting accommodation in isla vista?

I found this website, which seems to have several different links re vacation rentals in Isla Vista grouped together - sort of a one-stop "shopping" experience. Looks like it might be a good place to start your research.

Hope this helps!

Travel Tips for Santa Barbara

Most beautiful city on California

by pdk

I love Santa Barbara. I lived here for 3 years and would have stayed forever if I could have afforded it. It's absolutely worth spending some time here.

State street shopping is fine, but the live music, museums, and beaches make it worthwhile. Check out the Dog Day Parade, Solstice Parade, and Christmas Parade if you get a chance. But the 4th of July Parade is a bore. My kids wanted to leave halfway through.

There is not a huge amount of things to do in SB but anything you do outside is likely to be enjoyable. Walk down State street and many healthy, good looking people. The Botanical gardens, art museum, beaches, parks are all very nice. It's generally very safe and crime-free for California. Driving north on the 101 from LA there is a point where the highway hugs the mountains and the ocean and you can feel you have finally escaped Los Angeles. Sometimes when I return from out of town I am aware of how nice the air feels here, particularly around sunset.

by LysDor


The access path along the beach is the most popular place in town to skate and is suitable for all abilities. The path stretches from Ledbetter Beach, past the picturesque Santa Barbara Harbor, and around the Bird Refuge. At opposite ends are East Beach Grill and Ledbetter Cafe, great places to relax and refresh.

The first quarter

by venteeocho

The first quarter released in 2005 honors California, and is the 31st in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program. California was admitted into the Union on September 9, 1850, becoming our Nation’s 31st State. Nicknamed the "Golden State," California’s quarter depicts naturalist and conservationist John Muir admiring Yosemite Valley’s monolithic granite headwall known as "Half Dome" and also contains a soaring California condor. The coin bears the inscriptions "California," "John Muir," "Yosemite Valley" and "1850."

In 1849, the year before California gained statehood, the family of 11-year-old John Muir emigrated from Scotland to the United States, settling in Wisconsin. In 1868, at the age of 30, Muir sailed up the West Coast and landed in San Francisco. He made his home in the Yosemite Valley, describing the Sierra Nevada Mountains as "the Range of Light… the most divinely beautiful of all the mountain chains I have seen." He devoted the rest of his life to the conservation of natural beauty, publishing more than 300 articles and 10 books that expanded his naturalist philosophy.

The 20-member California State Quarter Commission was formed to solicit design concepts from California citizens and to review all submissions. The Commission forwarded 20 design concepts to Governor Gray Davis’s office for further consideration. From these, five were chosen as finalists and sent for final review to the United States Mint. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger chose the final selection from this group of five. The four other design concepts considered included "Waves and Sun," "Gold Miner," "Golden Gate Bridge," and the "Giant Sequoia" design. The Department of Treasury approved the "John Muir/Yosemite Valley" design on April 15, 2004.
