The city of Carpinteria sits along the coastline of southern Santa Barbara County, attracting visitors from all over the world with its large sandy beaches. Along with this, plenty of parks, shopping and fine dining options abound. The population of Carpinteria is just over 13,000 people, allowing the city to maintain a small-town feel.
The name La Carpinteria, or “The Carpenter Shop,” was first used by soldiers of the Gaspar de Portola Exhibition in 1769, who observed the Chumash Indians building wooden plank canoes in the area. Even with all this history, Carpinteria wasn’t incorporated as a city until 1965. Carpinteria has long been known for its agriculture, which thrives today. At the same time, other forms of business have emerged over the years, including tourism, retail, light industry and corporate offices.
