A beautiful hike nearby Goleta beach and UCSB. There is also a bicycle path that will take a person toward the scenic and seaside areas of Santa Barbara.
Oh, what fond memories. At the lagoon, I have meditated for a class, checked out Black-necked Stilts for another, and taken the K9 for strolls. The beach is perfect for a picnic with kids, dogs, and tired graduate students. Both are great for bike trips.
