American Riviera

Rediscovered

There are seaside escapes. Then there’s a gentle crescent of California coast connecting breathtaking beaches, soaring mountains, elevated enclaves, eclectic communities and verdant vineyards – in fact, Santa Barbara has over 16,000 acres of vineyards, with over 65 different varietals planted! Santa Barbara is located on a pristine stretch of California’s central coastline and ties together the Golden State’s Spanish influence with a laid-back vibe combined with upscale sensibility in a way only a few destinations can.  

With the Santa Ynez Mountains as a dramatic backdrop, guests cherish moments spent in this destination, a destination filled with upscale boutiques and restaurants offering regional wines and seasonal fare lining State Street. We invite you to come dig your toes into the sand and explore the stunning properties, venues, activities, and cultural experiences that set Santa Barbara apart from the rest.
