Showing 1-38 of 270 in Montecito
The small town of Montecito lies on a breathtaking stretch of California's central coast on the outskirts of Santa Barbara. The winding coastal roads and beautiful scenic overlooks here give way to inland farms and vineyards, Spanish inspired ranches, and the kind of sagebrush countryside that makes for an unforgettable vacation destination.
Come to Montecito to visit the old Spanish missions built by early settlers, some of which are now museums. Explore the vistas of Romero Canyon and the Santa Ynez valley. Take a sea kayaking eco-tour along the coast or visit the local zoo or botanical garden to learn more about the native plant and animal life in this area.
After the sun goes down, head into town to experience the world-class restaurants of the central coast and taste the offerings of some of the richest and most diverse farmland in the country. Some of the oldest and most established organic farms in central California are located right here, and these farms supply the kitchens of Montecito's award winning chefs.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your visit:
Like most of southern California, Montecito is beautiful all year round and draws visitors from all over the world. But as popular as it is, it's still always easy to find a perfect vacation rental here. Rent a luxury condo downtown close the restaurants, live music and nightlife or find an elegant beach house with beautiful views of the ocean. While you're visiting Montecito, consider taking a short trip south to San Diego or head north to San Francisco.
