Santa Barbara Zoo

IMG_1392IMG_1414IMG_1406A few weeks ago, hubby and I took the kids to the zoo. I hate zoos. In fact, my son’s first trip to the zoo was with his dad. But there’s something about Santa Barbara Zoo. The fact that it is smaller in size compare to the LA and San Diego zoos is a plus for me. It stinks… but not much – thanks to the ocean breeze nearby (yeah, it’s walking distance to the beach!). I find the lethargic animals endearing, the grounds are great, lots of open areas which my son loves, people are nice, and it’s very much catered to kids. Also a big plus is the soft taco snack and the children’s play area.

Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children 2-12 years old.
