This week I decided to interview a few people to see what they like about our city, Santa Barbara. Jack green is a friend who enjoys Santa Barbara and what it has to offer. I asked him a few questions, and this is what he had to say.
“What are your favorite things about Santa Barbara?” ” There is a lot of activities to do, and you’re in between the mountains and the beach so it’s up to you to choose where you want to go.”
“Where are some of your favorite locations to go to?” “Exploring up gibraltar and our local backcountry, Rincon, and different ranches in Santa Ynez.”
How does Santa Barbara compare to other cities? “Santa Barbara is a very unique place. There’s so many activities to do in such a small area, with the mountains, beach and everything in between. I grew up here so all my friends are here also.”
Would you rather live in a small house in Santa Barbara or a large house in a bad location? “Tiny house in Santa Barbara. A shack in Santa Barbara even.”
It’s always interesting to see how others like to spend time in their city, and where are the good places to go especially if you’ve never been to a location before. As you can see from what Jack said, there is a lot of different environments you can place yourself in Santa Barbara. Whether it is the back country of Santa Ynez on a ranch, surfing at rincon, or exploring the many options in the mountains on the backside of Santa Barbara. That is why I think there is such a wide variety of people in Santa Barbara. You can do so many activities and you do not have to drive far for them either, they are right in your own town. This is also probably one of the big reasons the surf community in Santa Barbara is large. There are easy places to learn how, and then there are also some of the world’s best waves also when the conditions are right. And the weather never gets unbearable, so it is a nice happy medium.
This is my friend Jack, who I did the interview with. Hiking, on Rattlesnake Canyon trail.
