Family Attractions in Santa Barbara

Best Western is a popular hotel brand for families. Book a room in a Best Western hotel near Stearns Wharf, the city's historic wooden pier and dining emporium, and you'll be within easy reach of both East Beach and West Beach, the Natural History Museum Sea Center, plus a short stroll from Santa Barbara Zoo.

Renowned as one of the best small zoos in the country, kids will love meeting the Masai giraffes and giggling at the Humboldt penguins during their daily show. If you book a Best Western hotel downtown, then older kids might enjoy the hip Santa Barbara Surf Museum at the bottom of Helena Street.

Getting around Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is an easy city to navigate. Downtown is best explored on foot or by bike, but there's a good bus and seaside shuttle network so you can reach the beach districts and the hill country easily. Greyhound and Amtrak also travel through Santa Barbara on the Pacific Surfliner route, if you want to explore California further.

Santa Barbara after Dark

After a day on the beach or sightseeing, head back to your Best Western hotel for a swim in the pool, before heading out to State Street, Santa Barbara’s lively downtown area, to sample some of the laid-back SoCal restaurants and bars the city is famous for.

Best Western hotels are renowned for offering guests comfort and affordability, and are situated in prime locations throughout Santa Barbara.
