July 27, 2014 - Best Small City in America

In case you haven't heard, Santa Barbara was voted one of the top 10 best small cities in America. We already knew that, but it's nice to know others think so too. Our little blue town by the big blue sea has a lot to offer tourists and residents. For one thing, our weather is quite nice and mild throughout the seasons. Seasons... what are those? The Dedicated Staff isn't exactly sure but we hear it's when the temperature will drop or rise drastically throughout the year and can cause massive amounts of moisture to fall from the sky. It sounds interesting, but we have yet to experience it fully. Besides our impeccable weather, there is a lot to do here! We have the mountains behind us and the ocean in front of us, with tons of activities located in between. Some edhatters have expressed frustration with the amount of tourists that are drawn to our small town, but it's ok to share the wealth every now and again. California was the state with the most votes on this top 10 list. Santa Barbara came in at #6, Napa came in at #3, and Carmel-by-the-Sea came in at #2. Interesting, all three of those locations have a booming wine industry filled with vineyards. Now we get it!
