Owner description: Quietly nestled between the ocean & the mountains, Santa Barbara represents the essence California -- the art & culture of the big city & the heart & hospitality of a small, coastal town. Between the shopping on State Street, some of the best restaurants in the country & the best that the hotel industry has to offer, Santa Barbara is truly a magnificent place to live or visit! Please come and visit us! We have free Visitors Maps with DISCOUNT COUPONS.

Staff was so helpful in our planning for an upcoming family reunion in SB. We gathered info on accommodations available, tour maps (with coupons!) Schedule of events and an information about costs for many of the available activities, so no one would walk in "blind" to some of them.

Friendly, informative, lots of info, including a weekly handout of events. Located on the main waterfront drag, adjacent to a huge carpark.

The visitor center is tiny, but it is loaded with pamphlets and maps. The staff are nice, friendly, and well-educated on things to do in the area. Parking (reasonably priced) is located right behind the visitor center as well.

We asked many questions and got some really good advice and answers and brochures to help us decide what to do.

It is a must to stop by SB Visitor Center for out-of-towners and locals to get information about the town and neighboring areas. Staff are friendly and are wealth of information.
