Family Vacation: Planning the Perfect Day In Santa Barbara

The perfect day of family activities in Santa Barbara starts with a stay at The Eagle Inn, a family-owned hotel near the beach. Enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast, and then borrow one of the Inn’s free bicycles for a spin around the popular West Beach neighborhood. Your Santa Barbara activities can include enjoying a day of fun in the sun at the nearby marina and beach or exploring the many attractions at Stearn’s Wharf, but be sure to stop back at The Eagle Inn for some freshly baked cookies in the afternoon! To get the most out of Santa Barbara kids activities, visit the following websites when planning your stay:

  • Santa Barbara AirbusRelax in style while Santa Barbara Airbus whisks you away for a daytrip. Upcoming adventures include Dodgers baseball games, an exciting day in Hollywood, a Mother’s Day Brunch on the Queen Mary, and the Huntington Gardens. Or rent a limo bus and plan your own excursion.
  • Segway of Santa BarbaraTake your family on the adventure of a lifetime and ride a Segway along the beach or down the flower lined streets of Santa Barbara. Options include a Santa Barbara beach run, the Butterfly Beach tour, the Old Santa Barbara tour, and a Mission tour. Private custom tours and electric bike rentals are also available.
  • Santa Barbara ZooTop on the list of Santa Barbara CA activities is a trip to the beautiful zoo. This reasonably priced attraction is known as one of the world’s most beautiful zoos. Its 30 acres of lush botanic gardens provide breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean, Andree Clark Bird Refuge and Santa Ynez Mountains. View more than 500 animals on exhibit in open, naturalistic habitats and you might even get to see the Zoo’s newest 6’ addition – Dane the giraffe.
  • Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History: The weather is usually great in Santa Barbara but this is a fun indoors option for natural history buffs. Learn about underwater life at the Ty Warner Sea Center, consider the wonders of the universe at the Gladwin Planetarium, or take in special exhibitions such as this summer’s TINKERTOY®: Build Your Imagination™ display.
