Santa Barbara Business Directory
Santa Barbara is a truly unique place to both live and to do business. Although the immediate city of Santa Barbara is small in size, the surrounding areas of Goleta, Carpinteria, Summerland, and Montecito greatly expand the reach and diversity of people and businesses in our community.
It’s often said that it’s hard to do business in Santa Barbara, not because of the people, but because of the constantly amazing weather. The temptation is great, but business owners know that in order to play hard we must also work hard.
The University of California, Santa Barbara also brings in a wealth of new talent and ideas each year. These young minds help shape our community and many often stay and settle in the surrounding areas, thus adding the energy and nightlife.
