We are rounding out a family trip (2 adults, 3 kids 5yo-10yo) down the coast from San Francisco in Santa Barbara. We are hoping to just chill out on the beach for the last day. Hotels on the beach such as Harbor View Inn are mucho expensive. I'm not opposed to dropping some cash on a hotel, but, I can find nicer hotels a few blocks from the beach for way less money. How walkable is Santa Barbara? Is there parking at the public beaches?
