Santa Barbara Botanic Garden

The nature-lover in you will swoon for the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Over 78 acres of botanical lushness and greenery await you in this secluded natural conservatory known for housing over 1000 species of rare and indigenous plants. Guided tours are free, and the walks among the oaks, boulders and dusty trails make for a serene escape into a Californian wilderness.

Great for learning about the region’s various ecosystems or just a nice walk in beautiful weather, the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens are 5.5 miles of trail among vistas too priceless to forget. See the Santa Ynez Mountains, the Santa Barbara Channel Islands, and the historic Mission Dam, or escape into the calm serenity of the Redwood Grove.
