Mesa Neighborhood Information

• What is it like to live on the Mesa? •

Location

The Mesa stretches out from Santa Barbara City College on the East and extends up to Douglas Family Preserve and Hendry’s Beach, one of the beloved beaches in town. This neighborhood can be divided into East Mesa, West Mesa,  and Alta Mesa. I am going to refer to The Mesa as a whole here. If you like more information about the Alta Mesa neighborhood, check here.

Appeal

Most residents enjoy the Mesa predominantly for its proximity to the water, the casual-beachy neighborhood atmosphere, and ocean views. This laid-back lifestyle appeals to so many here in Santa Barbara. Families especially appreciate the great playgrounds and parks, walkability, and the overall sense of community. You can easily bike, run or walk to the waterfront from most parts of the Mesa. It is also a popular neighborhood for dog lovers. There is so much attractive outdoor space for those long walks with your furry friend. The most popular place for dog owners to socialize is probably Hendry's Beach, with the off-leash option in one direction. 

Parks

Both La Mesa Park and Shoreline Park are very popular. In fact, Shoreline Park is considered to be one of the best parks in Santa Barbara with its wide-open grassy areas, toddler-friendly playground, many picnic benches, beach access, and incredible views of the ocean.

There is also Elings Park, a 230-acre park with several hiking and biking trails, sports fields, playgrounds, special events venues, paragliding, and stunning panoramic views. Sometimes you can even find lamas, goats, and sheep at the top of the park.

Schools

The public schools have a good reputation in town. Some options include:

Tip: Check general school ratings for more information.

Shopping

At the Meigs Road and Cliff Drive intersection, you’ll find all shopping you need for your Mesa lifestyle. Some popular options are:

  • Lazy Acres - one of Santa Barbara’s best sources for natural, organic foods and fresh produce.
  • Mesa Produce - Like a mini Farmer's Market

Restaurants

Some popular restaurant options include:

You can also find Vons, CVS, Rite Aid, several other restaurants, hair salons, fresh smoothies and juices, coffee shops, etc. to complete your shopping and dining experience. 

Note: Climate

If you are weather-sensitive, you should know that this area can get quite a bit of fog, especially during certain times of the year. The marine layer might keep the sun from coming through for the earlier parts of the day. Usually, the haze burns off around mid-day / early afternoon. On the plus side, the weather is cooler here during the summer and mild during winter.

Homes

Homes in this charming, coastal neighborhood are extremely desirable due to all the above-mentioned factors. You’ll find all sorts of styles from beachy California cottages, Craftsman and Ranch to Classic Mediterranean. Lot sizes are generally smaller and houses are closer together in this neighborhood. Most of the neighborhood is made up of single-family homes. But you will also find multi-family homes, apartment buildings, condos, and townhouses.
