East Beach Named One of Best Vacation Spots


East Beach was voted by Coastal Living as one of the “21 Best Beach Vacations in the United States,” with Montecito’s Four Seasons Biltmore recommended for hotel accommodations. That particular stretch of Santa Barbara shoreline was recognized in the magazine’s current issue for its white sand, Channel Islands views, and the volleyball lessons and summer camps held there.
