Bradbury Dam Lookout, Santa Barbara California

Description

On a short road off Highway 154 there are two lookouts. The first one gives a panoramic view of the deep blue Lake Cachuma. It is a romantic spot! The second lookout gives a good view of Bradbury Dam. It's fun for kids to see a real dam! Apparently there is a swimming area at the dam, with a beach, though we haven't visited it yet.
