The Westside neighborhood is highly desirable due to its proximity to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach and its more affordable housing options. It stretches from West Beach to Mission Street and is bound by State Street which splits the Westside and the Eastside. Public transportation, biking and walking are all great modes of transportation here. Its popularity has made it one of Santa Barbara’s most densely populated areas.
