ACT BuildingArthrex California Technology is located in Santa Barbara, California. Situated between the mountains and Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is known for its natural beauty and Spanish architecture, and is commonly compared to the Mediterranean for its temperate climate.  

Santa Barbara is considered to be a resort destination, yet it maintains a thriving mix of business, including agriculture, tourism and technology. There are excellent school systems and a large newly renovated medical center, as well as four prestigious institutions for higher learning: University California Santa Barbara, Westmont, Music Academy of the West, and Santa Barbara City College.

Neighborhoods to live: The Santa Barbara Riviera is nestled in on the mountain and has spectacular ocean views; the San Roque area is known for its mountain views; and the Mesa neighborhood fronts the ocean, overlooks the Marina, and is next door to the City College and coastal parks. Carpinteria is a little south and known for small beach community living, and Goleta is a bit north of Santa Barbara proper and is home to the University.

Santa Barbara locals take advantage of the beautiful year-round weather and participate in a variety of activities such as surfing, whale watching, kayaking, sailing, rollerblading, hiking, biking, golf courses, tennis courts, numerous public beaches and parks, a 30-acre ocean front zoo, botanical gardens, and fabulous shopping and farmers markets. Walk-a-thons, marathons, triathlons, cycling events and other various competitions are also very popular.  

The Santa Barbara community hosts a multitude of festivals and parades throughout the year, such as the Fiesta, the French and Greek festivals, the International Film Festival, the Big Dog Parade (which kicks off the spring), Summer Solstice, and, during the holidays, a holiday parade downtown and the Children’s parade and the Parade of Lights at Stearns Wharf. In addition, the underwater aquarium at Stearns Wharf is perfect for a fun outing with the family, and art lovers enjoy strolls along the water to experience the “Art Crawl.”   

Additional amenities and entertainment include a wide variety of excellent dining options, live performance theatres, movie theatres and an outdoor amphitheatre. Lower State Street offers cafes, dance clubs, dining and billiards. And, for the wine connoisseur, Santa Ynez Valley is home to some of the best wineries in California.
