West Coast East Coast Express showed up online and I called and had a discussion about our potential frequent business. The price they quoted me was already lower than what we used to pay and offered further deals if we were frequent shippers. They arrived to pick up the vehicle the next day and our buyer had no complaints about the arrival of his vehicle. Looking forward to the next transaction! read less1/30/2016

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.

- Upper State Street: is a residential and commercial district that includes numerous professional offices, and much of the medical infrastructure of the city.
