4 College Freshman

Local Area: The school is a little bit away from the actual town, so it is a bit difficult to get to the city. The main street is fun, but there is not a huge amount to do. The best part is definitely being so close to the beach.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: State street is great. Plenty of shopping, eating, library, theatre, movie theatre, art museum, churches, all within walking distance. Oh, and the beach is right here, too!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are lots of nice shops in town and great places to eat but taking the area into consideration, it's all pretty expensive.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Saanta Barbara is the best place to be at. There is always something to do around there.
