This article indicates a lot of poverty in the Santa Barbara area. 1 in 5 in Poverty

Pretty much every city has poverty unless it is a resort town.

Santa Barbara is way better for visiting than living. 2 million for a small starter house and sky high taxes, no thanks. Charleston is a great city for visiting as well, not my cup of tea for living thou, too small.

I have visited both and was happy to spend less than a day in SB. I saw the mission, toured the botanical garden, the lotus garden was closed. I'm not being snarky, what else did I need to see?

I have been to Charleston time and time again. You can tour the plantations and house museums, King and Meeting streets are good for shopping, but mainly I spend hours and hours walking in the neighborhoods. There's an aquarium and a navy ship you can tour. Then there's folly beach which is my favorite, some will prefer isle of palms. How many months can you swim in SB without a wetsuit?

Durr! How about its fantastic downtown, city hall complex, beaches, wine country, the paseos, the funk zone, the food, the wine! Nice try. SB is the prettiest city in the US. How many months of the year can you lay out and get a tan on the Charleston beaches!? SBs weather and scenery obliterate Charlestons. So sorry

You truly show how uneducated you're regarding other cities...

The coldest average monthly temperature in Charleston, is 60 degrees in January... Which is literally only 5 degrees less than Santa Barbara in January. And to continue, it's a lot warmer in Charleston in th summer, and guess what, you CAN actually swim in the ocean without feeezing like the Pacific Ocean. Good try, maybe do some research before posting something you obviously have no clue about

Charleston has bigger deviations in winter. They get days with highs in the 40s and sometimes 30s despite the averages, where I doubt Santa Barbara hardly ever sees a high below 50
