Goleta

Sands Beach GoletaSheltered at the base of Santa Ynez Mountains in the northern tip of Santa Barbara, Goleta is a sportsman’s paradise with a host of family recreational activities, including biking, bird watching on the famous Goleta Slough, fishing from the pier or volleyball at Goleta Beach. Goleta is also home to the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) and a well-heeled crop of local surfers.

The area’s history is on display at South Coast Railroad Museum and at the restored Stow House.  Other museums worth seeing: Maritime Museum and an Air Heritage Museum located at the Santa Barbara Airport. Each October, the city hosts the zesty Goleta Lemon Festival.

Goleta is a nicely established residential area of tract homes. Many of the engineers and employees of the aerospace companies, the university and larger companies live in this area.  Above Cathedral Oaks Road you move into an area of rolling hills with many homes commanding views of the ocean and mountains.  There are numerous fine residences and citrus and avocado ranches.  There is an abundance of condominiums and housing developments offering a variety of more affordable living.  Some of Santa Barbara area’s most admired schools are located in the Goleta area.  Within Goleta you will also find the private Cathedral Oak Tennis and Athletic Club, Sandpiper Golf Course, Hidden Oaks Golf Course, Twin Lakes Golf Course and Glenn Annie Golf Course.  Most of Goleta is relatively flat until it reaches the Foothills.

Santa Barbara and its world-class shopping, dining, cultural and recreational amenities are all within a 7-10 minute drive.
