Within the glossy exterior of each issue of Santa Barbara Magazine, striking photography accompanies intriguing accounts of the region's eclectic residents, arts, homes, and restaurants. Colorful covers lure readers to feature stories that fill the bulk of the magazine and profile noteworthy community members and goings-on, and the Around Town section highlights a broad spectrum of happenings—such as lavish weddings and concerts—in Santa Barbara and beyond. Meticulous wordsmiths spotlight prominent movers and shakers and imbue the Style pages with articles about local fashion designers and trends.
Deeper inside the publication, the Home and Garden section gives readers a glimpse of the intricate architecture and real-gargoyle sentries that define the area's most opulent dwellings, and the Food and Wine pages tip them off to Santa Barbara's top eateries, wineries, and culinary events. A handy City Guide further enlightens subscribers on some of the region's top hotels, restaurants, and seasonal events.
