Mission Santa Barbara is a great place to spend a few hours of peace and quiet.
Mission Santa Barbara was the 10th of 21 missions built in California about 200 years ago. This mission is a look back at California’s history to a much different time than we are living in now. The mission is offers a ton of great historical information as well as a chance for visitors to imagine what it was like to live many years ago.
Today, the mission is still functioning as a church where couple’s can be married, but it is mostly a tourist destination with beautiful buildings and gardens, and a gift shop. The fee for adults is $5 and kids are $1. Parking is free and you can stay for as long as you like. If you want to spend a few hours learning a little about California’s history in a relaxing, beautiful environment, then the Santa Barbara Mission is the place for you.
