I have friends in my former home of New York City who I used to think lived the ideal lifestyle…and still they would say to me, “You are so lucky. I’d love to live in Santa Barbara”. How can that be? It can be because we have a micro climate that allows us to be outdoors 365 days of the year. It can be because it is coastal living with some of the most beautiful beaches. People live here because they choose to and not because it’s where their industry dictates them to live. It can be because there are people here from all over the world who bring with them their culture and cuisine and experience. We celebrate those cultures with art festivals, film festivals, parades, bistros, performances, exhibitions. We are travelers. We are contributors. We are artist and entrepreneurs and business executives and philanthropists and students. We are a community of very fortunate people living the Santa Barbara dream.
