Walking Wednesdays


Walking Wednesdays is a series of free, local walking tours around Santa Barbara during the Spring and Summer months.  COAST organizes these walks to promote safe, fun and educational walking in Santa Barbara, as part of our Santa Barbara Walks initiative.

Walking Wednesdays are on the 4th Wednesday of every month from March thru August, starting at 5:30 PM.  Locations of the walk vary depending on the speaker and theme, and walks last about an hour and a half, until around 7:00 PM.

COAST thanks our sponsors for enabling us to continue our popular Walking Wednesdays progam for our fourth year in 2014!
