The Riviera Neighborhood Information

• What is it like to live on The Riviera, Santa Barbara? 

Named for its close resemblance to the Mediterranean coasts of France and Italy, the Santa Barbara Riviera has a truly European feel.

This neighborhood is situated hillside and is, therefore, a bit tougher to navigate. The roads are very windy, narrow, and can be steep in some instances. And the driveways can be trickier to get in and out of. It is not ideal for an easy stroll around the neighborhood. But instead provides a good workout while canvassing the ups and downs of the streets here. Its inclined location rewards Riviera residents with endless views of the ocean, city, and islands offshore. 

View from Franceschi Park

Parks

Some peaceful parks can be found in this neighborhood as well. There’s Franceschi Park and Orpet Park. As well as Parma Park nearby, which has a completely different and remote feel and is great for some hiking with stunning views, or even paragliding.

Shopping

This neighborhood is very residential with no particular shopping area designated to it. Depending on where your home is situated, you would most likely utilize the Upper State Street shopping (including Loreto Plaza, La Cumbre Plaza and Five Points Shopping Center), Downtown options, or the Milpas Street corridor, with several grocery stores and tasty taquerias. 

Schools

Schools in this neighborhood include:

Entertainment on the Riviera includes catching an avant-garde movie at the unique Riviera Theater. Or enjoying a delicious, romantic meal or drink at the beautiful El Encanto Hotel. The views from the hotel's terrace are stunning. Another fun venue is the Santa Barbara Bowl - an outdoor concert theater, which is easily accessible from the Riviera neighborhood.

Homes 

Alameda Padre Serra, called APS, is the Main Street of the Riviera, threading its way along the hillside all the way from the Mission down to the roundabout by Sycamore Canyon Road. Above APS larger homes on more leveled lots with higher price points can be found. The Lower Riviera is laced with enchanting streets featuring smaller homes with lots of charm and character.
