This fun festival (October 13th and 14th at Girsh Park in Goleta, CA), brings together the greater Santa Barbara community to celebrate the big impact a little fruit has had on the area’s history.

The historic city of Solvang, just 33 miles north of Santa Barbara in the gorgeous Santa Ynez Valley, is a unique little town and one of our favorite options for a day trip or weekend getaway. A visit to this little town in wine country promises a short escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – walking down the streets past the many shops and eateries feels more like strolling through a quaint Northern European village. Solvang (which means “sunny fields” in Danish) was originally built up around the Mission Santa Inès in the early 1900s by Dutch pioneers. Today, Solvang’s cultural roots are still highly evident in the Danish Provincial style architecture that dominates the main areas of town, the wealth of authentic dining options, the many festivals held throughout the year, and of course its four windmills!

After a long, beautiful summer, fall is knocking at the door. We have entered September, a time of year which evokes visions of bright autumnal leaves falling from trees, crisp and cool air, apple-picking, and kids headed back to school. However, in Santa Barbara, as the seaside sunshine still pours down and the palm trees keep swaying, we are preparing for a special harvest – gourmet grapes! Harvest time is approaching in the vineyards of Santa Barbara County!

Downtown Santa Barbara is a unique, beautiful place – it offers an overwhelming array of the finest restaurants, wine tasting rooms, shopping boutiques, and arts and entertainment venues. The atmosphere is upscale and refined, yet relaxed - reminiscent of early California with strong Mediterranean influences instead of the typical urban, gritty feel associated with the word “downtown.” Instead, downtown Santa Barbara presents a polished, modern re-interpretation of Spanish old world charm. Dominated by the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture, visitors and residents alike can soak up the coastal sunshine amidst gleaming white stucco surfaces, terra cotta elements, arcades, and courtyards.

This nature-infused architect’s estate in Marin County is so magnificent in scope and idea as to recall a grand public space. Yet the setting is secluded, the four-bedroom home at 450 Ridge Road carved into a hillside sheltered from bay winds.

The Santa Barbara lifestyle evokes thoughts of all the finer things in life – incredible luxury homes in exclusive neighborhoods such as Hope Ranch and Montecito, the best in wining and dining, pristine beaches and high end resorts, strolls along the waterfront, world class golf and country clubs, and so much more. Another major part of the Santa Barbara lifestyle is our community’s love of and support of arts and entertainment. From the annual star-studded Santa Barbara International Film Festival to our monthly “1st Thursday” celebrations, it is abundantly clear that Santa Barbara is a city that values and encourages community-driven creativity and artistry.
