About Goleta

Relaxed and mostly free of the large crowds, Goleta welcomes visitors to town with its rejuvenating spirit and imaginative ocean views.  With a number of hotels to choose from, you can easily stay close to restaurants and more at the family-friendly Hampton Inn or enjoy the oceanfront appeal of Bacara Resort & Spa, one of the best beach resorts in Central California.  Home to UCSB, Goleta enjoys activities aimed at a mix of all ages, with hotels close to the long sandy shore of Goleta Beach Park and the mild surf and scenery of Refugio State Beach.  There’s plenty to do and see when you vacation in Goleta.
