There are so many good reasons to move to Santa Barbara. Our perfect, Mediterranean climate and awe-inspiring views just scratch the surface when it comes to this place of paradise on earth. Here are 4 reasons to move to Santa Barbara in 2015:
1. Healthy Is More Than Just A Trend Here…
…it’s a lifestyle. Santa Barbarans probably run more, hike more and eat more veggies than everyone in your last city. They’re also getting more Vitamin D, since it’s sunny over 300 days of the year. You’ll find crowds soaking up the sun and working out at East Beach, where everyone who’s anyone can be found on a run, beach volleyball court or stand-up paddleboard.
2. Beautiful beaches
Long stretches of pristine beaches make the perfect backdrop for a healthy lifestyle. Whether you want to surf the waves or just sunbathe, you will definitely get your daily dose of Vitamin D!
3. Holy Guacamole
In 1871, Santa Barbara’s own Judge R.B. Ord introduced Mexican avocado trees to the U.S., bringing the joy of healthy fats and guacamole to all. Residents can easily find organic avocados every Tuesday evening on Santa Barbara’s famous State Street, Saturday morning at Santa Barbara and Cota Streets, or Wednesday mornings on Coast Village Road in Montecito when those locations host Farmer’s Markets. On Tuesdays, traffic shuts down to make way for peaches and avocados, while dreadlocked musicians in tie-dyed cotton pants offer songs and smiles as you fill your basket with organic kale.
4. Spectacular Hiking
Wedged between the Pacific and the Santa Ynez Mountains, the best way to view Santa Barbara is from the top. Downtown’s Spanish style architecture, palm tree lined boulevards and the distant Channel Islands are quite the reward for a little afternoon sweat.
