What Bert Has To Say About Santa Maria-Santa Barbara Metro Area

The three major cities in Santa Barbara County, two named in the metro area, and the other one, Lompoc, no longer in the name, offer a highly contrasting set of places to live. Coastal Santa Barbara is the center of the “California Riviera”—an area of mild climate, beautiful coastline, Mediterranean architecture, laid-back ambience, and affluence. The University of California at Santa Barbara, about 10 miles north, brings a college town element without dominating town life.
