Architectural Foundation Offers Walking Tours of Santa Barbara

Experience the significant architecture and history of Santa Barbara with small-group walking tours of the downtown area.

Join knowledgeable docents from the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara for an exploration of our architectural and landscape design heritage, and the events and people that shaped it.

From historic adobes to modern interpretations of the Spanish/Moorish/Mediterranean style, discover why Santa Barbara is often called “the American Riviera.”

Saturday walking tours begin at the City Hall steps at de la Guerra Plaza at 10 a.m., and Sunday tours begin at the entrance of the public library (near Anapamu and Anacapa streets) at 10 a.m.

Walks are an easy stroll and take about two hours. The suggested donation is $10 per person. Children younger than age 12 are free and should be accompanied by an adult. No strollers, young children or dogs allowed.

For more information, contact the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara at 805.965.6307 or [email protected], or visit the Web at

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
