This comprehensive guide reveals unforgettable activities, whether you have an hour or a week. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a long-time local, you will refer to this complete reference again and again for fascinating outdoor adventure, sight-seeing, education, secret spots, and volunteering.

  • See original Chumash paintings inside a cave 20 minutes from downtown
  • View celebrities’ houses, and sea lions on a buoy, on the same tour
  • Go climbing indoors on a cold or rainy day
  • Sit atop The Lizard’s Mouth and check out a four-island view
  • Take an “E-ticket” sand dune ride in a hummer
  • Volunteer your time and get up-close-and-personal with wild animals
  • Horseback ride in coastal canyons with your seven-year old
Note: The same book comes with your choice of cover photo: a kayak or a carousel. Both contain the same fun and adventures.
