Beautiful buildings, beautiful people, beautiful landscapes, beautiful dogs…just about everything about Santa Barbara and the “American Riviera” is a treat for the eyes and the senses. Santa Barbara is the kind of place where you can ditch your car, leash up your dog and wander, finding yourself, perhaps, tasting a selection of pinot noirs along the Urban Wine Trail, admiring Spanish colonial architecture on the podcast-guided Red Roof Walking Tour, or enjoying the plantings at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

The Santa Barbara pier and the multi-use path paralleling the beach offer lively perspectives, and at Arroyo Burro Beach you can unclip and let Rover run free.

The non-profit Santa Barbara Dog PAC has played a leading role in securing leash-free recreation rights in several county parks, helping to make Santa Barbara one of the most dog-friendly places on the Central Coast.
