OUR TAKE ON LIVING IN SANTA BARBARA AND THE LIFESTYLE THAT CARPINTERIA AREA AFFORDS
Located east of Santa Barbara and northwest of Ventura, Carpinteria is a genuine piece of paradise! No need to fly away to Hawaii or the Caribbean! Beaches here during the summertime are delightful! Volleyball, lifeguards, waves and you can walk right up the street for lunch in an old fashioned café or an upscale wine tasting venue. A strong sense of community pride makes for locals preserving much of the blufftop properties for public use. Included in the inspiring blufftop walk is a baby sea lion rookery where babies can often be spotted. Local volunteers protect this unique habitat so the babies and their mother's are not disturbed by beachwalkers or their dogs.
Measuring approximately 9.5 miles, Carpinteria boasts world famous white sand beaches, a Museum of Natural History, Farmer's Markets, wonderful bars, clothing boutiques, spas, restaurants, commercial shopping centers, municipal pool, Library, Post Office and an inviting small town feel.
