Visit Santa Margarita, gateway to north San Luis Obispo County and Carrizo Plain National Monument. Come explore our hidden Treasures! Established in 1889, Santa Margarita California holds historical and modern day wonders for almost everyone.

In 1774, Mission San Luis Obispo chose the Santa Margarita Valley for the site of their Mission Asistencia, an outlying farm. The Padres named the farm and valley “Asistencia de Santa Margarita” after the Italian saint. Wine-grape vineyards and wheat fields were farmed by the Chumash Indians of the Mission. In 1889, Santa Margarita became established as a town in the great State of California.

2 hours north of Santa Barbara or 2 hours south of Monterey, Santa Margarita is a quiet valley village with artisan people and close knit families that enjoy the best of what California’s Central Coast offers. Warm spring and summer days are cooled by coastal evening breezes making Santa Margarita a place to truly enjoy California's outdoor life. Explore this site and let us share our hidden treasures with you!
