Things to do in Santa Barbara
Get your suntan lotion and surf wax ready! Santa Barbara beaches have a reputation for being quiet, clean, and spacious. The most popular and lively spot is East Beach, which offers activities ranging from volleyball and a children’s play area to weekly drumming performances and art shows.
