The SB Cemetery is the a beautiful resting place for loved ones. The bluffs are one side mountains on the other. It is a gorgeous place just to wander around and look at headstones. both my parents are buried here.
Set atop the bluffs of Santa Barbara's waterfront Santa Barbara Cemetery is beautifully serene. They do offer services if you are in need of that, but if you just want to visit then you'll be glad you did. I like to look for names of famous locals like Leadbetter and Stork. See how many you can find!
This is a wonderful old cemetery that is still in full operation. It is very unique as cemeteries go, with its magnificent location perched atop a seaside cliff in Montecito overlooking the ocean, mountains and city, as well as its unusual architectural features, including one of a kind grand mausoleums, and the historic main buildings with their wonderful public art... 更多
We were staying at Fess Parker Doubletree and I'd read that he was buried at this cemetery, so we drove up to find his grave. The cemetery has sweeping views of the water and the mountains, as one of the highest points in the city. There are lots of interesting epitaphs to read. We had to find a worker to... 更多
Gracious, serene, old-fashioned luxury graveyard, mausoleums and urn rooms. OK, not everyone appreciates graveyards, but this one has class. Above ground private mausoleums with the family names Firestone, Duryea, Halliburton and the like, hint of a time when Santa Barbara was a favorite destination for industrial titans. They came by train--often in their own private luxury cars--for the season. (If... 更多

When I was a little kid (8-9) my best friend Diana and I would walk down the beach and climb up to the cemetery and... 更多
Located in scenic Montecito with a view of the ocean (not that you'll need it.) You too can be hob knobbin with Oprah and Ty Warner in these stately yet cozy dirt beds.
This cemetery is charming enough to be on the tour I give to visitors to SB. The same tour that includes our Andalusian Courthouse and the Queen of the Missions and Francheschi Park. Cypress carved by the wind into natural art perch on the bluff above Butterfly Beach and shade graves in the afternoon. Peaceful, green, breezy, quiet. Hard to... 更多
We visited this for the first time (although we have been to SB dozens of times), and thought it was a wonderful place. There are a few individuals of note buried here, but mostly it is fun to wander around--the cemetery has been here a long time. You can also peek across the fence to Bellosguardo, the mysterious mansion next... 更多
