Montecito Community Information

Montecito lies just East of the City of Santa Barbara. This gracious town has it all– breathtakingly beautiful views of the mountains and ocean, sun-dappled lanes, and a charming village lifestyle. It’s no wonder that Montecito has been the retreat of choice for industrial barons and Hollywood celebrities for over a century. For beautifully illustrated stories on Montecito history and the latest in arts and dining, go to Montecito Magazine.
