Santa Barbara is just about 100 miles (160 kilometres) west of Los Angeles, but couldn't be more different. It's a relatively small city, tucked between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean and its red-tiled roofs, white buildings and Spanish mission give it a Mediterranean vibe, called the American Riviera.
Santa Barbara must have one of the best climates in all of the United States. Summers last from May to September with generally warm and sunny weather, but very rarely too hot to enjoy. Temperatures are mostly between 20 and 25 °C and nights are never cold, though rarely warm either so bring a sweater for the colder nights. Winters are not much worse actually, although it's a few degrees cooler of course from November to March.
Santa Barbara can easily be reached by taking Interstate 101 from Los Angeles or coming from the north.
Greyhound has several daily services to Los Angeles (2.5 hours), San Francisco (8-9 hours) and San Luis Obispo (2 hours).
The Santa Barbara Airbus travels to Los Angeles Airport (LAX).
Buses are operated by the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District and run all over the city and its surroundings.
