Learn More About The Goleta Community

Goleta is a city in southern California on the south coast of Santa Barbara County, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles and ten miles west of Santa Barbara. This town is about 8 square miles long, stretching along the beautiful south coast, within a narrow coastal plain of exceptional natural beauty between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. 

Everything you need to have a good time is here—the perfect climate and location to be outside all year long. Cycling, world-class surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, camping, and golfing are the few outdoor activities available. Home to the oceanfront University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), has a long stretch of unspoiled beach and combines natural beauty, culture, and an enduring agricultural tradition. Goleta Valley is a fertile growing area known for its citrus fruits and avocados. The region's incredibly diverse ecosystem produces a wide range of fresh, local cuisine and award-winning craft beers and wine. No wonder it is also known as "The Good Land."
