We finally got to use the season passes we bought our last visit to the Santa Barbara zoo. If you have never been to the zoo it is a gem. Situated right near the coast, the weather is always great, the crowds small even on busy weekends, it's clean, modern and there are a bunch of other non related zoo activities like a play area for kids to enjoy.
I can honestly say it's one of my favorite zoos and it's a short distance from the Five Cities area.

One thing that sets the Santa Barbara Zoo apart from others is the cool elevated walkways found at the rear of the park.

Santa was at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Montana and Eddie got to talk to him and have their pictures taken. There was a fee for the printed photo, but how do you say no to something like this?
The Photos were taken in front of a green screen and within seconds were available with several different sizes and backdrops.
I can imagine this would be a great addition to any event. You can check out the company website here.
Hope you enjoyed our photos and your trip to the Santa Barbara Zoo.
