Located 12 miles southeast of Santa Barbara, Carpinteria (called “Carp” by locals) is a “small-town”, coastal community with a pedestrian-friendly main street (Linden Avenue), mom-and-pop shops, gourmet cafés and antique stores. It is the perfect beachy town and visitors come from all over to surf at the famous Rincon Beach and play in the sun at what has been deemed “The Worlds Safest Beach” also know as Linden Beach. The acclaimed Santa Barbara Polo Racquet Club is located in Carpinteria and offers one of the most beautiful equestrian polo fields. They have a annual Avocado Festival that kicks off at the first weekend of October that features live local bands and delectable avocado treats!
