Its hard to visit Santa Barbara without falling in love with its sun-kissed beachfront charm. I like to think that even the giraffes at the Santa Barbara Zoo feel lucky to have their incredible ocean view. The American Riviera is a year round destination for families who love to kayak, surf, whale watch, or just palm tree lined streets and enjoy the mission-style architecture.
Santa Barbara is home to family destinations such as Chase Palm Park, the Ty Warner Sea Center and Stern’s Wharf. Out on the water, kayak tours with Santa Barbara Adventure Company and whale watching excursions with CONDOR Express allow families to experience the stunning beauty of the Santa Barbara coast from an entirely different perspective. Of course, the beaches are nothing to turn your nose up to either. A family could spend the entire week on the sand and be perfectly content in their small slice of paradise.
