Published May 31, 2019

This charming seaside city is located near Santa Barbara and is perfect for a holiday destination with its restaurants, beach, bike trails and friendly locals. The beach, known as the World’s Safest Beach, is also a good place for surfing while the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve is a great spot to indulge in some bird watching. Among the many outdoor attractions in and around this city are tide pools with sea urchins and anemones and a rookery with sea lions and seals. In the evenings, take a walk down Linden Avenue with its chic vibe and stores down a palm-lined street. Carpinteria is also home to plenty of historic and quirky homes that are worth a look. The Avocado Festival, held here every October, is a major draw for tourists. Here is a list of the best VRBO vacation rentals in Carpinteria, California.
