We love living in Buellton. It's a small town but but it has more amenities than Solvang and Santa Ynez. If you like beer, this is the place to be! Easy access to the Santa Ynez Valley Wine industry but not in the thick of it. Also easy driving distance to both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.

I would like to see improved education, more diversity, better mental health services and improved pathways for pedestrians.
Surrounded by farmland, buellton California is a beautiful place to live. Commercial shops and boutiques line the main road. There is so much to see and living here in the middle of it is spectacular.
