While visiting my folks on the Central Coast, we took a fun day and headed down to Santa Barbara to visit what I would consider to be one of the best zoos established. The zoo itself is arranged perfectly were you can visit every animal but not feel like your walking for ages – perfect for families with lil ones! It is small, quaint but you experience a whole different level of viewing and witnessing these animals; not to mention you can feed the giraffes. GIRAFFES! Such an amazing experience not to pass up. Love this zoo!
