Santa Barbara Botanical Garden

A stroll in the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden undeniably changes the visitor: opening the eyes, slowing the pace, reveling in sounds, smells and sights-- a rare glimpse of California as it once existed. Sixty-five acres and over 5 miles of paths meander through an unrivaled collection of California flora and offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. Eight different habitats represent various regions throughout California, including redwood forests, oak and canyon woodlands, meadows and deserts.
