Santa Barbara, the American Rivier, boasts one of the most pleasant year-round climates in the country. Temperatures range from the mid-60s to mid-70s Fahrenheit throughout the year, though late summer highs climb into the 80s Fahrenheit. The Santa Ynez Mountains, which run along the east-west section of the Santa Barbara coast, serve as the boundary distinguishing the 'North County' from 'South County'. While the South County cities and towns nestle in the Santa Ynez foothills on the shore of the Pacific Ocean the North County communities are located in higher-elevation inland mountain valleys.
