Starbucks in Santa Barbara

Carpinteria & Casitas Pass Rd., Carpinteria, California

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 12/17/1999



"Carpinteria", meaning "carpentry", and I'm told it's so named because of the redwood planked canoes built by a local tribe. But enough of the silly historical babble--the real appeal of this store is the drive up US-101, which hugs the coast all the way here from Ventura. When I get around to buying that helicopter, I'll post some shots of this store and the coast.

This florid location, in the outer Santa Barbara community of Goleta, is the northenmost store in Southern California, at least along US-101. It's close proximity to UCSB (University of California at Santa Barbara) explains the "Store Hours for Finals" sign, and all the lovely, radiant, southern California college girls.

Montecito, Santa Barbara, California

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 12/17/1999



I may be fluent in Spanish, but my vocabulary is limited. Nevertheless, I will hazard the guess that "montecito" means "little forest", and this Starbucks location certainly bears out its moniker. One oddity about the area is that the Coast Village exit (off the 101) is a left exit--I've seen hundreds of exits all over the country, and left exits are a definite rarity.

W Carrillo & De La Vina - Santa Ba, Santa Barbara, California

OPENED: 2/2/2012, PHOTO: 5/1/2012



This store faced a bit of a controversy regarding their large outdoor sign, and eventually they had to take it down, so it now sits inside the store, on a wall, and thus gives this store a unique feature I've not seen anywhere else.
