Work, fun and family are all a part fo this community. A different pace than that of Santa Maria with great schools, feeling safe walking around before the late night hours (when most are not out anyway), community feel and lots of new local businesses. Great place for families!

Orcutt California is a nice little town adjacent to Santa Maria. It is in a great location in between Santa Barbara and Pismo beach. This town has nice weather and nicer people who truly care. This town may not have everything, but it is near almost everything you need. If you crave the night life you are a 45-minute drive to either San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara. If you are more into the beach life, then you are in luck because you are surrounded by some of the nicest beaches in the world. Finally, if you are a foodie then Santa Maria has you covered with its world famous barbecue.
