Are you looking for something fun to do in Santa Barbara with Halloween right around the corner? There are so many fun things to do in Santa Barbara this time of year and we wanted to share Santa Barbara Trolley’s favorite things to do in town for Halloween.
Santa Barbara Trolley loves the SB Zoo! If you’re really into animals, then check out the Santa Barbara Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo, this year’s theme is Land of Adventure. Take your little ones to the Zoo to trick or treat without the hassle of traffic, and the opportunity to see amazing animals up close! October 26, 5:30-8:30; October 27, 4:30-8:30; October 28, 4:30-7:30
Last week my friends and I went to Lane Farms to pick out the best pumpkin to carve into a jack-o-lantern. We couldn’t pass up their corn maze, which by the way is really confusing. They also have a hay ride for those who like to take a little trip around the farm. The pumpkins are reasonably priced, and we even haggled the prices and got them for slightly cheaper than they originally wanted to charge us for!
If you’re looking for a little more excitement in you pumpkin picking, then head over to Earl Warren Showgrounds for their Interactive Pumpkin Patch. They have all sorts of inflatable activities, and fun rides as well!
On Halloween day, take your best costume to Ghost Village Road and get loaded up on candy! Stop by Here’s The Scoop to enter their annual costume contest and pick up some “Worms & Dirt” gelato. The festivities go from 3:00-6:00. If you can’t make it out to Montecito, State St. also has their own trick-or-treat walk.
You can also hop on one of our classic open air trolleys to get a ride around town to check out the sites before hitting the streets for some candy. Check the Santa Barbara Trolley schedule online for pick up locations and times.
Be safe and remember a flashlight if you plan on trick-or-treating after dark!
