Santa Barbara Travel Bureau to Host Travel Show at New Montecito Office

Saturday's event will focus on vacation options for the whole family

The Santa Barbara Travel Bureau will host a free family-friendly travel show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 in its new Montecito office at 1485 East Valley Road.

Discover the different travel choices available to families with children of all ages. There will be balloons, refreshments and an opportunity to win prizes — including the grand prize of a six-night family vacation for four (two adults and two children, age 12 years or younger) at the all-inclusive Grand Palladium Resort in Riviera Maya provided by Apple Vacations.

The Santa Barbara Travel Bureau’s second annual Family Travel Show, co-sponsored by SBParent.com, will focus on vacations that the whole family can enjoy, including multigenerational travel, cruises, hotels, all-inclusive resorts and a variety of land packages.

Show participants will include several travel vendors representing family-oriented destinations or programs. The Santa Barbara Travel Bureau’s top family travel specialists — trained to design the perfect vacation where parents can relax and children can play — also will be available to answer questions.

Parents and children are welcome. Local balloon designer Juan Barron will join the event to help entertain the children with his creations. An authentic taco stand will sell tacos and Mexican beverages.

Don’t miss out on a chance to win door prizes, airline tickets or the grand prize, which includes four round-trip charter flight tickets from Los Angeles to Cancun and airport transfers. The grand prize winner must be present at the time of drawing.

The Santa Barbara Travel Bureau has been arranging travel accommodations for the Santa Barbara community since 1947. It has three office locations: 1028 State St. in Santa Barbara; 1485 East Valley Road in Montecito and 3130 Telegraph Road in Ventura.

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!
