Minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, Goleta offers the good life to its fortunate residents. Traditional neighborhoods of single-family homes and condominiums ramble across its valley floor, while larger properties and ranches grace its foothills. The University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) calls a beautiful campus on the Goleta coastline home and is the county’s largest employer. Private business has also flourished here. There is a strong business community comprised of high-tech and aerospace companies, as well as many small businesses. The dynamic energy of business, technology, and higher education are balanced by the many contrasting features born in Goleta’s natural beauty. There are beautiful parks, bluffs and beaches as well as an amazing nature preserve. Golfers can enjoy the stunning coastal Sandpiper course or the foothill location of Glen Annie. Goleta is also home to Bacara, a world-class resort that has become a favorite destination of the rich and famous.
