I had a wonderful day at the Botanical Gardens in Santa Barbara! Beautiful landscaping and beautiful flowers. It was really hot up there and I totally forgot to bring my sunscreen so I got a pretty nasty burn! You do lots of walking and it is usually pretty hot up in the hills so I recommend some protection! I was just in Santa Barbara actually and the botanical gardens was simply delightful, as usual! Another great botanical garden to scope out in the area is also Lotusland in Montecito. Equally if not more beautiful then the gardens! A great hotel that is really close to the Botanical Gardens is the Sandman Inn. So budget friendly and the rooms are so nice and spacious.
