I have lived here all my life. The Moreton Bay Fig Tree has always been a focal point and landmark of Santa Barbara, even when the freeway had a traffic light! This tree has endured through the years as a prime photo op for visitors,...More

Go and see this tree. It such an amazing tree. You won't believe it. It was gifted to the USA and it is very old, but the roots and just the whole tree is an experience. Just go see it.

Walking down the street, our family saw this tree and all we thought was "that is a big tree!". The boys wanted to climb it. Hell, I wanted to climb it. Didn't see any signs on our side saying we couldn't but I figured it...More

You will find this fig tree in the mission. It's very pretty. But directly underneath it is the skeletons of native people who died in this area. It is very sad. A sad reflection of american and australian culture.

It's a nice tree and bit of a curiosity, but it is still just a tree. If you are driving or walking past it take a look at it, it is unique, but don't make a special rip to see it.

On our first morning in Santa Barbara, we looked at Google maps to guide us to the Santa Barbara Court House. On our way, we passed by this tree. Wow! No one and nothing going on around it so I didn't realize what it was...More

Just beyond the train station you will find this old historic fig tree. It certainly is big, so without standing a mile away, you probably won't be able to fit the whole thing in your camera frame!!! It is just a quick picture spot -...More
