Summerland is a little pocket of paradise perched right on the coast off Highway 101 south of Montecito. The charming small beach town serves up sweeping ocean and Channel Island views and a super slow-paced lifestyle. It’s a destination for browsing, shopping, antiquing, wine tasting, outdoor adventure, and unfussy dining.
Stroll along its main street, Lillie Avenue, and take in the sights and charming delights that its 1,500 residents have already discovered. The best way to explore this artsy, eclectic village is on foot. It doesn’t take long as you stroll through this quaint hillside beach town to discover there are plenty of unique attractions and diversions concentrated along this one-mile strip of street.
