Why Everyone Loves Goleta, The Goodland

When people call Goleta “the Goodland” – they are speaking the truth. There is so much to love about this beautiful coastal community. I live in Santa Barbara city. I love my house and my town, but there is a part of me that is always thinking about moving a little further north to Goleta. You see, I grew up in a small town with lots of neighborhood kids to play with in a very suburban neighborhood. My best friend lived 3 blocks away and at age 7, I was allowed to ride my bike (with no helmet) up the block to play for an afternoon. It was awesome. My grandparents lived 2 blocks away and on a daily basis I would drop in to see them, shell some walnuts with my grandpa and watch TV with my cousins. I had no idea how good I had it.

When my husband and I started our family, I had a sad realization that I would not be able to provide my kids with the same neighborhood that I had growing up in. Our street is often filled with rush hour traffic and a walk to my in-laws would take about an hour and require a great deal of stamina. Now, I know my parents don’t live in Goleta and the streets can be busy there too; but when I drive the neighborhoods and see the freshly manicured lawns, the kids riding bikes and the mom’s chatting at Stow Park – I can’t help but feel I belong there too.
