Another Santa Barbara feature that is quite popular among interested home buyers is its Mediterranean-like climate. In fact, Santa Barbara is often referred to as the American Riviera in part because of its climate.
Because Santa Barbara is located so close to the ocean, residents often enjoy onshore breezes that help to create warmer winters and cooler summers.
