One Degree of Separation

The statement that Santa Barbara is a small town with a big name could not be more true. Because of Santa Barbara’s small town nature it’s probably not the place to flip someone off in traffic because there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be running into that person at the grocery store in the near future. It almost seems like everyone is on their best behavior? And, why not, we’re all lucky to be here. My take is that it is this small town vibe that makes living here so exceptional. People here really care about this community, and it shows.

Community character makes a difference. Obviously Santa Barbara is a great place to live because of it’s climate and semi-rural character. But if you dig deeper into what makes living here so exceptional you’ll find that commmunity character is the glue that pulls it all together.

A great example of this is the  Unity Shoppe organization that reaches out to those that need help here. Their motto is “Neighbors Helping Neighbors!”  If you’re looking for a great community with a small town feel, than Santa Barbara is the place to be!
