Carpinteria is a seaside community located 12 miles south of Santa Barbara and 15 miles north of Ventura. This beautiful little village is one of California's best kept secrets, with over 4,000 feet of gorgeous beachfront set against a backdrop of mountains. The average daily temperature in Carpinteria ranges from the 60s to 80s, making it perfect for year round outdoor activities. It's home to Carpinteria Beach State Park, which offers overnight camping, fishing, picnicking, hiking and tide pooling. Carpinteria Beach, called "the world's safest beach," is perfect for long, romantic walks at sunset, and Rincon Point is a world-renowned surfing area. The main streets of town are lined with dozens of restaurants, galleries, antique and specialty shops, and a weekly Farmer's Market is held in Carpinteria, featuring fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables and flowers. Each year in October, the Carpinteria Avocado Festival is held in the downtown streets, where you will find food, arts and crafts and lots of good family fun. Other attractions in town include the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History and the Seaside Theater Company, a local theater group. Whether you come to Carpinteria to stroll through town's shops, or spend time on the beach, you'll find yourself drawn to this quaint seaside village time and time again.
