Lotusland Estate & Gardens (GCC/PSC)
Departing: Saturday, June 2, 2018

1 Day Package

Price: $99 Per Person

You’ll be amazed by this 37-acre botanic garden and former estate situated in the foothills of Montecito near Santa Barbara. Lotusland features an enormous diversity of exotic plants from around the globe arranged into 25 themed gardens – each distinctive in design but beautifully transitioned to provide a seamless passage between the elaborate themes. A two-hour, docent-guided walking tour will showcase these gardens which were created by opera singer and socialite, Madame Ganna Walska – who owned the property from 1941 until her death in 1984. While she owned it, she improved upon existing gardens and created new landscapes that comprise the present exotic collections which include rare cycads, cacti, palms and euphorbias along with ferns, aloes, lotuses, water lilies, bromeliads and the newest additions, the palmetum and insectary garden. Prior, enjoy lunch on your own in downtown Santa Barbara along State Street and Paseo Nuevo – the gorgeous Mediterranean-style shopping district. Suggested: walking shoes as there are hilly, uneven walkways and stairs in the gardens.
