February attracts many to Santa Barbara

With plenty of beautiful sunny 70-degree plus weather forecast for the next two weeks in Santa Barbara it’s certainly a good time to take advantage of many upcoming events and opportunities in Paradise. The Santa Barbara International Film Festival takes place February 3rd – 13th, with over 200 films and 53 premieres including The Little Princess and Night of Cups. Johnny Depp, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Sylvester Stallone and Rachel McAdams will all be presented awards at the festival. Super Bowl 50 is scheduled for February 7th and can be enjoyed at many venues in town, including a 10-foot screen presentation at Velvet Jones, 423 State Street. Santa Barbara’s Winter Wine Classic happens February 20th at Fess Parker’s Resort with one of the largest gatherings ever of California’s ultra-elite winemaking masters. The Banff Mountain Film Festival takes place February 23rd – 24th at the Arlington Theatre promising some of the most incredible outdoor adventure footage in its history.

Santa Barbara’s ever abundant selection of outdoor activities can also be enjoyed during this month’s perfect weather. From walking, hiking, biking, surfing, sailing, golfing,… to touring a wide range of incredible real estate. In addition to the 152 new residential listings that have come on the market since January 1st there are still many properties that were priced or reduced in price at the end of last year and are still available.
