Hi, we'll be in Goleta (near U.C.S.B.) for 5 days at the beginning of August with our daughters (ages 9 and 6). I know we should check out the beaches and the zoo, and the "Old Spanish Days" will be taking place while we're there, but are there any other things we should definitely do/see? We're willing to drive a couple of hours away (not to L.A.) but I'm not familiar with the geography or attractions of that area.
Restaurant suggestions would be great too! (we like both upscale and comfort food)
Thanks SO much!
