- Carpinteria is a quiet, coastal town with a charming main street laden with family-owned restaurants and mom-and-pop shops. The main street, Linden Avenue runs all the way to tranquil Carpinteria State Beach, known as the "World's Safest Beach". Farther south, visitors can walk across the bluffs and peer down to the harbor seal rookery where pups and their parents lounge on the beach. The area and setting lend to being very family friendly.
- Carpinteria, or Carp, as the locals call it, lies 12 miles southeast of Santa Barbara. The native Chumash tribe used to build canoes here and when the Spaniards happened upon the boat builders in the late 1700s, they named the place Carpinteria, or "carpentry shop."
