Lotusland Gardens Day Tour Calendar
A Boo-tanical Stroll Through the Gardens
With Downtown Santa Barbara

Departing: Thursday, October 28, 2021

1 Day Package

Price: $129 Per Person


Escape for the day and travel up the coast to Santa Barbara, the fabulous beach city known as “America’s Riviera.” Enjoy time at leisure in downtown Santa Barbara with lunch on your own at a variety of restaurants offering outdoor dining along State Street and at the Mediterranean-style shopping district, Paseo Nuevo. This afternoon we’ll travel into the Montecito hills above Santa Barbara to explore Lotusland, the incredible 37-acre botanic garden. The garden features an enormous diversity of exotic plants (more than 3,000 in fact) 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. This time of year, the gardens provide a boo-tanical experience with spook-tacular decorations, poisonous plants, creepy creatures and mysterious surprises around every corner. Enjoy a two-hour, self-guided walking tour with docents available within these gardens created by opera singer and socialite, Madame Ganna Walska – she 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, the palmetum and insectary garden. The newly renovated Japanese Garden was the largest and most complex project ever undertaken at Lotusland and the treasured garden offers a tranquil escape from the hectic world to help restore your body and soul. This tour involves extensive walking over hilly, uneven garden walkways.
To ensure a healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our guests, this tour will operate with additional health and safety measures in place and require each guest show proof of vaccination and complete a Wellness Pledge.
