About Carpinteria, California
Carpinteria is a small quaint town fifteen minutes south of Santa Barbara and about twenty minutes north of Ventura. Blessed with a safe sandy beach with gentle waves and campground on the beach, the area is popular with residents, tourists and neighbors from nearby cities. Many attend the annual Avocado Festival.
The city is located almost entirely on a coastal plain in between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Immediately to the north of the city lie foothills and then the Santa Ynez Mountains. Between the foothills and the populated area of the city is an agricultural zone. The mountains provide a scenic backdrop to town, covered in chaparral and displaying prominent sandstone outcrops. Because of the well-ventilated nature of the air basin, ozone concentrations are low while air quality is high.
Carpinteria Beach is known for its gentle slope and calm waves in selected sandy areas but also good surfing swells in some of the more rocky areas.
Seals and sea lions can be seen in the area December through May at the rookery n the nearby Bluffs, as well as an occasional gray whale. Tidepools contain starfish, sea anemones, crabs, snails, octopuses and sea urchins. A marathon-length round trip north of the rookery along the beach to Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara is possible, though passable only during low tide. A popular campground is located adjacent to the beach. There is bird watching at the Salt Marsh Reserve, established in 1977 and administered by the Natural Reserve System of the University of California. The Wardholme Torrey Pine, largest known Torrey pine tree on earth, is located in downtown Carpinteria.
The population is approximately 20,000 and the larger employers include Procore Technologies, Carpinteria unified School District, Linkedin and Agilent Technologies.
