California Roads - Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara


CA 217 is a short freeway that links Santa Barbara Airport to US 101/CA 1. Most of it, including these signs, is on unincorporated land near Goleta, but the airport itself was annexed by its parent city.


Mission St. heads north from US 101/CA 1 across Mission Creek. I am not a fan of this font on road signs. I like to be able to read road signs quickly so I can focus on not crashing into things.


Mission St. ends, and you'll want to turn left on Laguna St. to get to the 1910s sign in front of the old mission. Before there was even a US 101, there was El Camino Real and the Auto Club of So. Cal. pioneering road signs.
