Natives are on Tour Again in Santa Barbara, California

Tomorrow, all seventeen of us we will head up to Santa Barbara, which is an hour and 20-30 minutes from home for a three day, two-night visit.  We will all be staying at a quaint little B&B.  I say that now because I really have not seen the place up close and personal. We will though, very soon.  We have an outline of places to see and have left plenty of time for beaching.  We will be located 1/2 block walk to the beach and I understand they have a wonderful playground on our beach, which will be perfect for the kids.  Our list of things to definitely see begins with the Santa Barbara Zoo. You know that this zoo is one of the nation’s smallest, but most enjoyable, and family friendly. There are over 600 animals, so how small can it be???

Absolutely of course we want to spend some time at The Santa Barbara Mission.  This is where Santa Barbara began and it offers some historic insight. Every 4th grader in California has to study missions, so this is the place to visit for your self as well as following California history standards.  We plan to take in the small but interesting aquarium on Stern’s Wharf. Since we are going to be in SB on a Sunday, the Santa Barbara museum of Art is FREE.  We want to stroll down State Street and enjoy the unique and unforgettable shops and eateries.  My favorite is the Museum Of Natural History. I loved it as a kid and love it now. It is just small enough to be perfect for body and mind. The outline mentioned above is just a lot of possibilities and I know when we go exploring there will be Santa Barbara assets revealed.  Since it has been very, very hot at home, we plan to enjoy the mild temperatures due to exposure to the sea produce. Off we go on another Natives on Tour expedition.
