Santa Barbara is like a big, happy, sunny playground for kids of all ages (and adults - so get stuck in!) Don’t forget to pack your bathing suits and sunscreen - you’ll need them!
While Santa Barbara is an incredible place to just grab some bikes, or those buckets and spades, and enjoy exploring the town, there are also very fun things to do with kids while you’re there!
The Museum of Natural History has amazing exhibits on fascinating subjects like marine life, palaeontology, and Native Americans.
The Maritime Museum lets kids delve into the treasure of the ocean, and Santa Barbara Zoo is over 30 acres in size! That’s pretty incredible! With over 400 animals plus a train and carousel, it certainly is a full family day out! Nature is beautiful in the area, but places like the Botanic Gardens are great for kids to really learn about what makes this place so beautiful.
A small town with a Californian history, Santa Barbara has mountains, parks, beaches, and yep - kids fun! Let’s go!
