#5 of 17 in Parks in Santa Barbara
Stroll along the shore at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, where you can look for whales, swim and surf the waves, or go surf fishing instead. For those who prefer dry land, explore the sandy beach or take a ride along the equestrian trails. Keep in mind that the park is popular with dog owners, so expect some canine visitors. Grassy areas are equipped with picnic tables, but get an authentic experience by joining locals at the onsite restaurant.

Where to stay in Santa Barbara

Blessed with a mild climate and lush location, Santa Barbara remains a playground for the rich and famous, so it's no surprise that accommodations can be extremely expensive here. The priciest hotels are near the water, so before you make your reservations, decide if staying beachside fits into your budget. You can find more affordable rooms at any one of the area's small motels, located just blocks from the beaches. These offer secure parking, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi.
