"Somewhat quaint beachtown near Santa Barbara" Carpinteria by tvdandy

Carpinteria Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 14 photos

A good place if you are on a budget.

Carpenteria is located halfway between Santa Barbara and Ventura. This is a small village by the ocean with a little downtown that butts right up against the beach. Great place to stay if you are on a budget. Much less expensive then Santa Barbara, Ojai or Ventura. Literally almost no nightlife to speak of, so this will be a consideration to some. Basically a very nice place to totally chill for one day tops. Nice little beach. The downtown does have a nice selection of restaurants and shops for a town this size.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place for a budget.
