Montecito Heights is tucked between the beautiful Arroyo Seco River and Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. Perched high in the hills, Montecito Heights offers sweeping views of Los Angeles, California. This neighborhood is fairly isolated because of the elevation and because of its location — Debs Park is 282 acres of nature preserve, and the Arroyo Seco area has several parks and hiking trails.
The Heritage Square Museum is a living museum made up of eight historic buildings, all moved to this location during the 1970s to save them from being torn down. A trolley and a train car are also located here. Montecito Heights enjoys open green space and plenty of wildlife. It is a trendy location and is considered an up-and-coming area. The Craftsman homes (tribute to the neighborhood’s roots in the Arts and Crafts Movement) are being restored by new residents at a fast rate, making Montecito Heights a desirable hotspot.
