The only problem that Qazzoo can identify with Santa Barbra is that is exists in the state that has some of the highest taxes in the world. Taxes alone kept many California cities off of our list. But when it comes to Santa Barbra we have to have something to detract or it may possibly be heaven on earth. The climate is out of this world wonderful and the people are friendly and welcoming compared to most cities in the Golden State. Crime is low and incomes are up so of course the city has a higher than average cost of living but the exchange is made for quality of life.
Santa Barbra is also relatively small compared to other cities on our list and for that matter other cities in the US. This quaintness translates to a neighborhood feeling for a city which is unusual. Santa Barbara’s beaches and location are among the best in California and the climate alone is worth the price of admission.
