15 kilometres to the west of Santa Barbara's centre, you can reach the district of Isla Vista.
The major draws of the Santa Barbara area are immediately recognisable and those at the front and centre are the Mission Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County Courthouse and Presidio Santa Barbara.
Are you spending time in Isla Vista? It's worth taking the time to visit the University of California-Santa Barbara.
Plan an afternoon out at Goleta Beach and take a deep breath of the sea air while you bask in the sun. Consider the Pacifica Suites and Hampton Inn Goleta if you'd like to stay close by. Get some fresh air and enjoy the local birdlife at Coal Oil Point Reserve. The Courtyard Santa Barbara Goleta is your most convenient option for this attraction.
Starbucks is an ideal hideaway on a miserable day in Isla Vista. Curl up with a book or just while away the afternoon over some coffee and pastries.
