Moving to Portland-landmark
Moving from Santa Barbara, California to Portland, Oregon with West Coast East Coast Express

Welcome to Santa Barbara, California

Santa Barbara is located in the Santa Barbara County of California. The city is actually the county’s seat. The name originated from the Spanish word for “Saint Barbara”. The city has a pleasant Mediterranean climate, which is influenced by its positioning – the city is located in between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The city is often referred to as the “American Riviera” because of its climate and weather. According to the 2014 US Census, the population was estimated to be around 91,000 residents.

Santa Barbara is great for people who are looking to get a new job because of its strong economy, which includes a large service sector in tourism, education, technology, health care, finance, agriculture, manufacture, local government, and so on. The city is located along the Pacific coast, about 90 miles west-northwest away from Los Angeles, the capital of California.

Weather in Santa Barbara, California

As we have already mentioned, Santa Barbara has a warm summer Mediterranean climate, because of its position along the Pacific Ocean. The onshore breezes moderate temperatures which then results in warmer winters and chillier summers, compared to places further in land. Very heavy rainfall can occur in winters. The annual rainfall is 90 inches, but it depends largely on the region of the city. The precipitation rates are less than 6 inches during the dry season of the year. Snow is extremely rare in the city center, but it does occur on the Santa Ynez Mountains.

Neighborhoods of Santa Barbara, California

It is of great importance to pick a neighborhood which will best suit you and your family, depending on whether you have children or you’re planning on starting a family etc. Here’s a list of the neighborhoods in Santa Barbara, with a bit of information on each one:

  • The Riviera: Since the past century, it has been known as "the Riviera" due to its resemblance to the Mediterranean coastal towns of France and Italy. It’s particularly noteworthy for homes with outstanding views of the City of Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean.
  • The Mesa: stretches 2.5 miles from Santa Barbara City College on the east to Arroyo Burro County Beach on the west. "The Mesa" has a beach vibe. This is considered to be a desirable neighborhood due to its proximity to the ocean as well as the college.
  • The Westside ("west of State Street"): lies predominantly in the lowlands between State Street and the Mesa, including Highway 101, and also reaches down to Cliff Drive, incorporating Santa Barbara City College.
  • Mission Canyon: A popular spot as an entry-point for weekend foothill hiking, it is one of the most rustically beautiful, yet fire-prone areas of Santa Barbara due to heavy natural vegetation.
  • The Eastside ("east of State Street"): is generally the area east of State to the base of the Riviera, and includes Santa Barbara Junior High School, Santa Barbara High School, and the Santa Barbara Bowl.
  • Lower State Street: also known as the Funk Zone, the area features commercial properties with a thriving nightlife. The area also serves as the main location for local celebrations and parades such as Old Spanish Days Fiesta.
  • Upper State Street: is a residential and commercial district that includes numerous professional offices, and much of the medical infrastructure of the city.
  • San Roque: This area is said to be a constant 5 degrees warmer than the coastal areas, due to its greater distance from the ocean than other Santa Barbara neighborhoods and is also the most popular spot for Trick-or-Treaters on Halloween.
  • The Waterfront: comprises roughly commercial and tourist-oriented business structures along Cabrillo Blvd including Stearns Wharf, the Santa Barbara Harbor and the breakwater, and extending East toward the Bird Refuge and West along Shoreline Drive above the SBCC campus West.
