Explore Carpinteria, California, in an RVshare RV Rental

Nestled between Santa Barbara and Ventura, Carpinteria is a land of leisure in a location of plenty. With a population of 13,000, Carpinteria provides a small-town vibe for guests looking to make day trips into Los Angeles, Oxnard, and Santa Barbara. In 1757, Spanish explorers discovered a peaceful beach community of Native Americans that welcomed them to a beautiful beach with playful waves and intriguing canoes sealed with tar. Since this first encounter, the area has beckoned visitors looking for a peaceful spot to get away from day-to-day stresses.

Carpinteria Beach runs from east to west along this portion of the California coastline with Rincon at the eastern end and Santa Barbara on the west side. Warm and sunny weather greets visitors looking for seashells, agates, and marine life as they walk the beach. Whale watchers claim this beach to be one of the best to spot gray whales as they migrate. Seals and sea lions lay sunning on the rocks between December and May. A series of tidal pools add fun and a sense of wonder for kids and adults. 

Though Carpentaria is small, the town hosts 31 restaurants with various cuisines. A sampling of these restaurants include:

  • Teddy’s By the Sea: This notable restaurant provides a unique mix of seafood and Mexican cuisine. Try the wild salmon sandwich or spicy cauliflower tacos for a memorable taste.

  • Siam Elephant: The Siam Elephant provides intriguing Thai food. Full meals, like the Siamese duck, are exceptional examples of Asian cooking.

  • Dang Burger: The Dang Burger is a throwback to the days when hamburgers were fat and loaded with flavor. Whether you are looking for a traditional basket of a burger and fries or an old-fashioned milkshake, this is the restaurant for you.

Carpinteria is unique in its mix of cultures. When Spaniards wandered onto the site, a rich Native American presence had existed for millennia. When the Great Migration expanded into this area, Spanish, Mexican, and Native American families were found. At the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History, visitors get a taste of this cultural mix through exhibits, including artifacts and displays covering more than 5,000 years of local history.
