Santa Barbara, or the American Riviera as is seldom called, stands out with its wanted Mediterranean climate, jaw-dropping landscapes and striking shorelines. This fantastic city isn’t as famous for its active or feisty neighbourhoods filled with friendly citizens, according to local real estate Kenny Slaught. The CEO of Investec believes that such extraordinary communities can be created with a solid culture, an up-and-coming small business sector, and dedicated non-profit organizations. The Santa Barbara city planners of 1925, appreciated the innate charm of Southern California and set up laws to protect Spanish Colonial architecture, and the city became the first municipality in the United States to consider the importance of older buildings. The County Courthouse is the most visited spot by tourists as is beautified with brightly colored tiles and frescoes that display major events from the city’s history. A church that has been operative for more than 200 years, The Old Mission, known as the “Queen of Missions,” gives a splendid view into the formation of the New World through guided tours and a vast museum.
