We found the playground on our way to the SB Mission. Be warned…you will lose track of time and your kids will not want to leave :. Santa Barbara was always a favorite destination when we lived in LA. We often visited the waterfowl sanctuary next to the zoo. Adding it for our return visit soon. The mission must be pretty huge and the year old Fig Tree looks stunning.
The playground must also be so much fun. Overall there is just so much to do and see without spending anything and still have a wonderful time with your family. Have a beautiful day Mary :.
PLACES TO STAY
Thanks Arti! The playground and mission were huge. We love Santa Barbara not only for its beauty but also for all the free attractions. What some great ideas and things to do with kids, mine would have so enjoyed them when they were smaller. Santa Barbara looks like a fantastic place to visit.
I particularly liked the tall palm trees, big mountain in the background and the way the blue of the water and sky is nearly identical. Both Jack and I used to go to school there. How lucky for you guys to have gone to school in the beatiful part of California. I would have had a hard time concentrating. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
