Visitor Services


The Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce manages two Visitor Centers, both in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara and steps from the beach. The Visitor Centers are every visitor’s go-to resource to maximize their time on the Santa Barbara South Coast from Goleta to Carpinteria. Our well-informed staff provide maps and recommendations, answer questions, give directions and offer current information on things to do in the area during your visit. Welcoming over 100,000 visitors annually, both Visitor Centers are excellent places to make the most of your trip. Whether you are looking for a place to stay, a place to eat or an activity or excursion, the Visitor Centers are available to help you.
