We had a blast getting out of the house and seeing some amazing animals. Santa Barbara Zoo is 90 miles north of Los Angeles, but it’s worth the drive (which is beautiful) to be in this charming zoo. It’s doing a great job encouraging social distancing, mandating mask wearing, and keeping things clean. Right now you must make a reservation, which is great because it keeps the park at low numbers. We got through the park in about 4 hours, and were able to take it slow, see every animal, go on the train, feed the giraffes, and take time letting the kids climb trees, play in the grass and have a picnic under the beautiful trees. It was a picture perfect day! Let me know if you have any questions about taking your family! Watch the video at the bottom to see more.
