While Simpson House Inn is not an oceanfront property, it more than compensates for this with the convenience of its location, within reach of virtually everything Santa Barbara has to offer, and a mere 15-minute drive from the airport.

Several parks and attractions are within walking distance, such as the The Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens, and the Natural History Museum and Planetarium. And wine country is only a 40-minute drive away.
