It sits on the longest south-facing stretch of Pacific coastline in America. Home of the Chumash, Ben Harper, Slightly Stoopid, Katy Perry, the Loud family, and the antediluvian Arlington Springs Man. Location for My Favorite Martian, It’s Complicated, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and the final scene from The Graduate. Fake location for Psych — a show about a fake psychic. Sister city of Puerto Vallarta and Dingle, Ireland. It’s Heaven on Earth. I’m finally in Santa Barbara.
