Best Kid-Friendly Activities in Santa Barbara


There are so many activities to bring your children on, and to make even better, adding a luxurious Santa Barbara limo will leave an unforgettable birthday or other special event for kids. Here are some of our best ideas for best kid-friendly activities in the S.B. area!

Walk with the butterflies

The Goleta butterfly preserve is a gorgeous and memorable experience that gotta be tried out. Some early-risers using our Blackhawk Ventura limousine services headed up here recently for a birthday party. As they explained, when the sun rises, the butterflies wake up and one by one they leave the trees and fly down to the eucalyptus forest. There are numerous trails transversing the area, which easily makes for a full day of activities under the sun.

Outdoor Stearns Wharf film night

Kid-friendly movies are screened numerous places in the county, most notably outside at the Carpinteria Linden Field as well as at the end of the Stearns Wharf. Movies here usually run from July to September, and makes for a great semi-outdoor activity for the family.

Botanical Garden walk

Many Santa Barbara limo clients love the 5 acre botanical garden with gorgeous flowers and trees of all kinds. From a redwood forest to meadows of lupine and poppies, there are great opportunities for activities here, including picnicking for clients who decide to bring their own lunch baskets.

Whale-watching cruise

The Condor Express and the Island Packers are two services offering whale-watching cruises in the channel. Also departing from Ventura, this is a tremendously popular Ventura limousine destination. From a recent group of friends hiring an Oxnard party bus we heard how they witnessed “tons of dolphins, as well as migrating grey- and humpback whales”. Remember to bring a jacket or two!

Feed the ostriches!


Most visited on our exclusive Santa Ynez wine tour options, the town of Buellton is also home to OstrichLand U.S.A., a beloved kid-friendly farm where you can hand feed the ostriches! From a recent group flying in using our LAX sedan service we also discovered the great Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory! As a kid-friendly version of a Santa Ynez wine tour, here you can taste all kinds of locally produced chocolates, including for instance caramel-covered apples and more. For the tourists that recently arrived and booked our LAX sedan service, they also added a visit to the Solvang Festival Theater just down the street for live outdoor entertainment..
