Crisp salt air, blue skies, and mountain tops flirting in the mist are just the beginning notes in a melody celebrating life in Santa Barbara. There are also wonderful cultural institutions and a plethora of non-profits that are dedicated to upholding basic human rights, the warm care of humans, and stewardship of the earth both locally and around the world. They all make their CASAs in Santa Barbara along with thousands of creative individuals who make Santa Barbara one of the creative hotspots in on the West Coast.

VOICE Magazine / CASA Magazine celebrates them all... the romance, beauty, ambience, creativity, big heart, and cosmopolitan nature of our little city by the sea.
