You are minutes away from the beach and the harbor. There is all the shopping and restaurants you could want on State St. There is also a ton of hiking trails with awesome views and even small waterfalls.
Santa Barbara is party galore. There is something always going on in Isla Vista and once your 21 the downtown club/bar scene is also fun. In addition, there's plenty of outdoor things to do like hiking and the beach.
Kayaking at the harbor is only $7 for an hour with your student ID! Bike rides downtown are my favorite. There's always a show to go to and something fun to do in Santa Barbara! If anything, just grab your towel and head to the beach!
