* NOTE: Both of the above routes require making a left turn across a double yellow lines into the driveway. If that driveway is viewed as “private”, then such a turn would be allowed, however, it could require waiting for oncoming traffic to clear which might make one unpopular with drivers waiting behind you. Proceed to the next intersection and navigate accordingly to turn around and make a right turn into SBCGS’s driveway.
Surface Street Routes (No left turn across oncoming traffic required.)
For “locals and adventurous visitors” that prefer traveling only surface streets within the Santa Barbara/Montecito areas and want to avoid making a left turn across a double yellow line, we offer the following links for routes/directions from a few select neighborhoods:
The gated entry onto SBCGS property will be open ±20-30 minutes before SBAUG’s event begins. There is ample parking behind the buildings on the site—SBCGS requests that attendees to SBAUG’s event do not park in spaces designated with signs as “tenant” parking. There is a short walk from parking to the designated entrance for the SBAUG event. Look for and follow the SBAUG Logo Signs.
