Get out of the car, and get away to Santa Barbara
In some places, you need a car to get from point A to point B. In Santa Barbara, all you need is a comfortable pair of shoes and the willingness to go where the sidewalk takes you. Enjoy a family destination where you can forget about filling the tank and focus on the things that matter, like entire days full of family-friendly activity and an upbeatable lineup of family-centric festivals and events. From a museum that holds your kids' attention for a refreshingly long time to a park for a lesson on the majestic Monarch butterfly, then to the beach to bury your toes in the sand. This and more is within walking distance - or easily and enjoyably accessed by bike, surrey or electric shuttle, which for families means more time seeing and doing, and less time wondering if you're there yet. Leave the car in park. You're here in Santa Barbara.
