Santa Barbara things to do.

10 Sep 2006  Lost all the money in Vegas.
4.5 of 5 stars based on 2 votes

Free time and not a lot of money ?

  • Category: Recent trip
  • 1. Observation Tower

    The observation tower at the Santa Barbara County court house is FREE and a GREAT view of the city and downtown. Located in the center of downtown, easy to find.

  • 2. West beach

    West beach has free parking after 5pm - good for sunsets

  • 3. Chumash Casino

    Yes, there is an Indian Reservation casino about 40 miles north of Santa Barbara, it is small and smoky. Not really worth the trip. Tight slots, guests seem desperate and naive, awkard fit in the beautiful wine country.
