Best time to take a vacation to Santa Barbara
Best Time to Go
Santa Barbara, California has welcoming weather all year round. So while most people visit during the summer season, mostly because of school vacations, it's very comfortable and much less expensive during the winter. With a Mediterranean-type climate and temperatures that only reach the mid-70s during most of the year, the city is a welcome place to escape any weather extreme. Most crowded during the summer, especially during the Summer Solstice Celebration in June, people also aim for travel during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival during February.
