Santa Barbara: Education and A Blast from the Past

Santa Barbara has many educational opportunities.  It is home to University of California, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara City College, Westmont College, Antioch University and Brooks Institute of Photography.  Santa Barbara City College boasts a School of Culinary Arts and Hotel Management and has a Nursing program. But tourists do not have to attend these schools to gain an education. Santa Barbara has many different places that offer learning opportunities or just a blast from the past.

A blast from the past is located near University of California, Santa Barbara.  West Wind Santa Barbara Drive-In @ 907 Kellogg Avenue in Goleta.  All movies shown are double features with a large lot for plenty of cars to fit. A fun snack bar and an area for football or tag make this a great place to see how we used to go to the movies.

For those looking for a little more education, head to the beach. The Ty Warner Sea Center is located on Santa Barbara’s Pier and offers the youngster a whirlpool petting zoo; complete with mussels and starfish! The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is located in the Santa Barbara foothills and offers a wide range of education from the onsite planetarium to the full whale skeleton that greets guests as they arrive. Not far away are the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens offering serene and breathtaking scenery with local fauna. Do not forget to get tickets to go see Lotus Land in Montecito – anyone on the trip is certainly guaranteed to see and learn something new.

On your way out of Santa Barbara, a little further down the coast is Carpinteria. Next to Carpinteria’s state beach is the Salt Marsh. The area is a natural preserve that has trail, ropes, and descriptions of local vegetation and wildlife.
