Santa Barbara is a city most well known because it is the home of Shawn Spencer on TV's Psych. However, Santa Barbara is also a lovely beach community that sits in the countryside outside Los Angeles. People like Rob Lowe have lived in Santa Barbara for years because it allows them to live outside the city without being too far away. Santa Barbara has a number of small attractions that make it a great place for a day trip. I have lived here long enough to know that most of the scenes on Psych are shot in Canada, but the overhead shots show you a pier that you can enjoy all the time. Our Pier is one of the best in the country, and you can sail a boat out into the Pacific at any time. You could sail up the coast to Monterrey, or you can sail down by Los Angeles. You have more freedom in the city than you could imagine. The city is a place where fine chefs are coming to get out of the hustle and bustle of L.A. Also, the dining in the city allows people to enjoy simple fare that is based on food that was made by Spanish explorers or the native Indians. Every person that comes to Santa Barbara, California will walk away with a different memory, but the abiding memory is that the city is comfortable. Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to vacation, but it is also a place where you can live if you want to be outside the big city.
