So we had to drive by here just to see the this tree. It is the largest tree I've ever seen. If in the area, you need to see this!

This majestic tree used to mark the place where the 101 highway stopped at State Street for a traffic light...and traffic would back up dangerously. At least while stopped at that intersection one could get a great look at the Moreton Bay Fig, grand dame...More

The tree is surprisingly big. I ate figs the first time in 2017. I really like it. I like the tree too!

....it has a beautiful canopy, amazing roots and a good back story. Thriving for its age, may it live long and prosper. A top tourist stop....not really.....we drove past on our Segway Tour.

Hard to believe this tree is over 100 years old. We drive by this whenever we are in Santa Barbara. A must see!

Unless you're super into Fig Trees, this isn't very worth seeing. Yeah, it's a relatively large tree, but it's not in a great area of town and it's really not spectacular in any way. Don't waste your time unless you're a serious tree-buff.

Santa Barbara has beautiful trees all over. Huge figs that are really well taken care of. It's wonderful. I found this tree accidentally, as I was taking the rain from SB down to LA and it is at the (darling) Santa Barbara train station. I...More

I understand why someone would want to see this tree, but there are too many homeless hanging around. You would think the City would do something more to spruce this up since it is such an attraction for the tourists.
