 Carpinteria > Activities

For such as small town, Carpinteria certainly has enough to keep a person busy.  Since it's located about half way between Ventura and Santa Barbara and has historically been isolated from easy access to other towns, it's had to become self-sufficient in the entertainment arena.

You can swim, surf, roller blade, skateboard, dance, ride bikes or work out at the gym.  Almost any Sunday afternoon you can find a game of soccer or a family picnic at one of the many parks.  You can catch a movie or play, shop along Linden, eat or walk the pathways of the estuary.

Basically, boredom isn't a complaint Carpinteria locals voice often!
