Fun Santa Barbara Activities

When you stay at Pacific Crest Hotel Santa Barbara, you'll be within close proximity of so many enjoyable things to do in Santa Barbara. Right outside our friendly boutique hotel are the white sands of East Beach, a beautiful destination for sunbathing, swimming and surfing. Enjoy outdoor concerts at the Santa Barbara Bowl or get wild at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Walk to the Funk Zone packed with cool galleries, eateries, and wineries, or sip your way down the Urban Wine Trail. Explore Stearns Wharf for shopping, dining, and whale watching, or see creative new movies at the annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

"So glad we stayed at Pacific Crest" -- I stayed here with my husband and 10 year old son in August 2017. Our room had modern updates and was clean, light, well ventilated, and quite beautiful. It is obvious that the hotel owners take a lot of pride in the property and in their hospitality. They were super friendly and accommodating and they even provided a small refrigerator for our room after hearing that our son had food allergies. They were also knowledgeable about the area having lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat. All of this combined with the very short distance to the beach made our stay perfection. Santa Barbara was our favorite part of our vacation largely due to our decision to stay at Pacific Crest. 10/10 would recommend.
