Have you ever heard of Santa Barbara? The Californian city is easier to overlook than many other ostentatious skylines of larger cities in the USA. But that is precisely why a language study abroad in this wonderful city is worth it. For Santa Barbara does not stand out because of large buildings; instead, it stands out because of its amazing atmosphere and exquisite quality of life, which has attracted many American stars to the Californian city.
Charming, narrow stone steps lead to the dream-like Santa Barbara beaches. You are more likely to cross paths with a star from the American film or music industry here than in many of the other big cities across America. Due to its unique charm, Santa Barbara has become one of the most expensive places to live in the USA, aside from the Silicon Valley. Away from the celebrities, there are also numerous students and families in this coastal city who breathe life into the promenades, bars and restaurants. In short: Santa Barbara is one of the most beautiful settings for a successful language study abroad!
