Linden Avenue is one of the two main drags through Carpinteria. Of course, it is the main road that leads to the beach.  It is home to a number of excellent restaurants, shopping (especially antiques) and services. 

Several of our top picks are here - Cajun Kitchen, The Coffee Grinder, Robitailles, and The Spot.  The Train Station is here, as is the only B&B in town - Prufrocks.  It is also home to majestic palm trees that are almost 100 years old. 

Linden hosts the Christmas Parade of Lights, the Avocado Festival, the Antique Car Show, and the 4th of July festivities. 


Linden has been renovated in recent years so it is charming and easy to walk through.  Several of the restaurants have outdoor tables, cafe style.

Check out, a great website put together by the students of Main and Canalino schools for the CyberFair.

Local secret #1 - the best parking is just off Linden.  There are parking lots off of Juniper and 8th. 

Southbound.  Take the 101 to the Linden Avenue Exit.  Turn right.  Voila. You're there.

Northbound:  Take the Casitas Pass exit. At the top of the ramp turn left.  At the lights turn right and drive until you reach the last set of lights.
