SANTA BARBARA

Treffen Santa Barbara
Touring the American Riviera
 

On behalf of the members of the Santa Barbara Region and the Treffen North America staff, we would like to invite you to attend Treffen Santa Barbara, Touring the American Riviera, on the breathtaking California Central Coast over April 3 –6, 2019.

Our host hotel is the serene beachfront retreat and authentic Santa Barbara experience, the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort. Set across eight villa-style buildings along California's Central coastline, the resort has something for everyone – stunning views from every room, casual dining options, large heated outdoor pool, coastal indoor/outdoor event space, and recreation on land and water.

The resort is a short walk away to the quaint town of Santa Barbara where culture is around every corner. It’s a step back in time to early Hollywood or to the very first days of Fiesta. The history of Santa Barbara runs deep. From the basketry and boat-building techniques of the Chumash Indians, to the Spanish Colonial influence, and the first days of filmmaking, Santa Barbara’s history is vast and truly unique.

But, of course, the primary reason for touring this coastal oasis is to experience some of North America’s best driving roads. The hills overlooking Santa Barbara contain some of the best driving roads in all of California with an overabundance of elevation changes, plenty of switchbacks, and very little time to get bored on straight stretches.
