Whats In Santa Barbara, California?

I know this is a long shot but has anyone been in the Santa Barbara area in California?

I might go to the Santa Barbara City College after high school.

I have been there and there is really nothing there. You need to go to a bigger city where there is more action.

I used to live up the coast in San Luis Obispo, and spent a fair amount of time in SB with friends I used to race bicycles with and what not. I really liked it, although it is ungodly expensive, but most of California has become that way. Part of the reason why I am now residing in the midwest.

Anyway, State street is the main drag in SB, with a fair amount of things to do. Isla Vista is the college town wrapped around UCSB, and there are things to do there. If you are in to being outdoors, it is a great place. Cycling, road and mt, rock climbing, surfing, etc... There used to be a decent music scene, and I suspect that there still is due to its proximity to LA.

Its a nice place for sites and things like that but I dont think you would want to live there. How old are you? Single? Married?

Ok, since I live in Carpinteria (10 minutes south of SB) and work in SB, I believe I can field some of these questions. First, SBCC is one of the top-rated community colleges in the state, and it sits atop two cliffs which overlook the harbor and a nice beach. Second, as for night life, since you're too young to drink legally, Isla Vista will be your best bet for a good hangout. Also, since it does have some of the best weather available, with the exception of this winter, outdoor activities are king. If you enjoy the beach, you won't be sad when it's sunny. The main downside, aside from the lack of real late-night (after 1 or 2 am) activities, is housing cost. You can count on some serious cash every month to keep a roof over your head. Actually, it's not all that different from San Diego in most respects. If you have any more questions about Santa Barbara, feel free to IM me, my contact info is in my profile.
