You need to be in Santa Barbara!

Picture of Santa Barbara, California.

A California city that is as expensive as you imagine. But you do get your money’s worth. Think endless sunshine, beautiful people and laid back beaches -- Santa Barbara is certainly all that.

It’s one of the few places in the country where you have access to mountains, hiking trails, surfing, beach volleyball -- and skiing in the mountains only a few hours away.

Make sure to check your bank account before packing your bags.
