With Santa Barbara’s mild weather, it’s a perfect place to play your favorite sport or even find a new one. We’re really spoiled for choice here.

Golf lovers have five courses to choose from, with both community courses and private clubs, as well as tennis courts in Mission Canyon and Montecito. Santa Barbara even has two lawn bowling clubs, several community baseball diamonds and a batting cage location (next to a great taco place!).

You’ll see volleyball games on the courts at East Beach and soccer in many parks across the city. Look up and you’ll see hang gliders and para-sailers floating on the breezes off Elings Park and the cliffs over Hendry’s Beach.

There are also plenty of gyms in the city, training people in all sorts of fitness from Crossfit to rock climbing to Zumba.

Of course, a good walk is always good exercise, and there is no shortage of great places to do that in the city.
