A Community That Values Health

Santa Barbara is a city located on the central California coast, with the Santa Ynez Mountains serving as a breathtaking backdrop. The downtown area is characterized by Mediterranean-style white stucco buildings topped with red-tile roofs, which beautifully reflect the city’s Spanish colonial heritage. State Street, the main thoroughfare, is home to a variety of upscale boutiques and restaurants that offer local wines and seasonal cuisine. Just a short distance away, on a hill, you’ll find Mission Santa Barbara, which was founded in 1786 and now serves as a residence for Franciscan friars as well as a museum.

Santa Barbara is renowned for its stunning beaches, captivating Spanish colonial architecture, and thriving cultural scene. Visitors flock to attractions such as Stearns Wharf, the Santa Barbara Mission, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and the Santa Barbara County Courthouse.
