Goleta, California: Butterflies and Lemon Groves Minutes from Santa Barbara Beaches

The newly incorporated town of Goleta lies near the California coast, just 8 miles from Santa Barbara. Every October, tens of thousands of monarch butterflies flit through the area as part of their annual western migration. You can watch them at the Goleta Butterfly Grove, which contains 137 acres of designated trails and beaches. Another spot worth a visit is Rancho La Patera & Stow House. Dating back to 1871, this working ranch features 19th-century gardens, almond and lemon groves, and a historic museum.

With its sandy beaches and mild climate nearly all year long, nearby Santa Barbara is often called the “American Riviera.” Centrally located East Beach is a popular spot—it has a long shoreline with volleyball courts and snack bars. For more peace and quiet, head a few miles east to no-frills Butterfly Beach. It’s one of the only Santa Barbara beaches where you can see the sunset, since most of them face south.

Santa Barbara is a very bikeable city. Lots of paths take you alongside the water and through pretty residential neighborhoods. You might want to cruise along the Cabrillo bike path, which runs beside the Pacific for 3 miles, from Leadbetter Beach to Montecito. Along the way, stop at Stearns Wharf to check out the seafood restaurants and boutiques on California’s oldest working wharf, where fishermen can still be seen hauling in the day’s catch.
