Santa Barbara Zoo day trip - A day to remember

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.
