Known as “one of the world’s most beautiful zoos,” the Santa Barbara Zoo is located on 30 acres of botanic gardens and is home to nearly 500 individual animals. The giraffes have a view of beach volleyball, due to its location on a hill overlooking popular East Beach, as well as the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Santa Ynez Mountains, and city of Santa Barbara.
