Santa Maria is the fist true central coast town as you travel up the California coast from Los Angeles. Located in northern Santa Barbara County the Santa Maria Valley is a major agricultural area with an increasing number of vineyards and wineries. Santa Maria is also famous for its black-on-the-outside, pink-on-the-inside, grilled beef tri-tip steak Santa Maria style barbecue. Santa Maria's court hosted the trail of Michael Jackson trail in 2005 due to its location near the Neverland Ranch. Santa Maria has much more to offer to locals and visitors.
