“The Audrey Hepburn of Zoos – petite, charming and beautiful.” (The Food Network)
Even the lions and the giraffes have sweeping ocean views at this charming sea-side park. The beauty of the animals is matched only by the lush gardens. Just two miles from State Street, this quaint Zoo can be toured in ninety-minutes to two hours, though you’ll be tempted to linger longer.
It’s easy to see the allure of Santa Barbara: long stretches of tawny sand edging an expanse of ocean, an imposing backdrop of chaparral-covered mountains, and in between, a ribbon of land that is home to four exciting cities — Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito and Summerland. Santa Barbara and surrounding areas welcome families and individuals who enjoy the outdoors, sports, arts and culture, fine food and wine. There’s something for everyone… and three days will give you a chance to sample its charms.
A vacation that’s actually fun for the whole family is a rare thing indeed. But if any city can deliver, Santa Barbara can! In addition to plenty of parks and beaches, Santa Barbara has loads of attractions and outdoor opportunities that will satisfy kids big and small.
