Cheshire Cat Inn knows that Halloween in Santa Barbara is a howling good time! We love any event built around a great imagination. Why do you think we have Mock Turtle’s Room, Cheshire Cat’s Room and March Hare’s Room? So many fun and spooky activities are scheduled that you’ll want to spend several nights at our Santa Barbara inn just to catch them all! Here are just a few ideas for Santa Barbara Halloween fun:
