What is SBMerge?’s primary objective is to guide tourists and locals alike to all of the finest Santa Barbara restaurants, hotels and events. We showcase the best dishes, rooms, activities and goings-on that Santa Barbara has to offer with distinct style and imagery. Our editors go out of their way to provide original photographs so that we maintain our own individual brand and identity. We want to submerge visitors in all of the beautiful things that epitomize our seaside city.

SBMerge also offers unique, high-end travel options for residents looking for weekend getaways throughout California. We feature choice hotels, restaurants and shops that we have personally visited and feel comfortable recommending.
