ABOUT 805 LIVING

805 Living is a high-end regional lifestyle magazine that combines the best of both worlds: the quality and style of a national publication with locally focused, relevant editorial that highlights the vibrant communities of western Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. Readers depend on 805 Living for its exciting mix of home design, style, entertaining, health, recreation, shopping, dining and food, wine and spirits, family, events, travel, and, of course, the extraordinary people who call this unique region of Southern California home.

Thanks to our seasoned group of contributing writers and photographers, 805 Living has been nominated for several Maggie Awards by Western Publications Association for our premier issue, for "Best City and Metropolitan Magazine" and "Best Public Service Article" in 2006, and "Best Regional and State Magazine" and "Best Lifestyle Magazine" in 2011.

805 Living was launched in 2004 and is published ten times a year.
