• Our first visit to the Charles Paddock Zoo

    I had to take a trip to Paso Robles and we decided to stop in Atascadero on the way back for some lunch and our first visit to the Charles Paddock Zoo. Our choice for lunch, mainly because we were starving was the A&W just up the road. After lunch, we hopped in the car, loaded the kids into the car seats and made the couple minute drive to the museum.

  • 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.
