Foodies love fresh finds, which is why so many have been flocking to Goleta. The many fresh tastes of California’s Central Coast emerge in Goleta’s food, wine, and beer scene. A perfect pairing of nearly unlimited sunshine and fertile soil make it possible for restaurants to offer locally sourced produce year-round. The Santa Barbara Channel serves up sustainably sourced seafood, and the ranchland that sprawls through the nearby hills provides a wide variety of savory meat and poultry. Menu options cater to every palette and pocket book. Be sure to sip your way through Goleta’s prominent craft breweries, and don’t miss a pour of Santa Barbara County’s world-class wine, which is easy to find in these parts.
