Carpinteria hosts the Avocado Festival, the country's premier equestrian polo fields and hundreds of visitors each year. If you're visiting, you will find this one-stoplight city has some terrific places to stay and visit.
- Downtown Carpinteria: A downtown with no formalities, this town goes by "Carp" to the locals. The downtown area features fun restaurants and surf shops.
- The Bluffs: Get a bird's-eye view of the ocean in a vacation rental set on the bluffs near Rincon Point without so much as a speck of sand nearby. Or, rent bungalows and beach homes that are just steps away from the surf. The vacation rental options allow you to be near the action or enjoy the beach's tranquility from afar.
