After years of being invited by a very dear friend of mine to attend the UCSB Family Vacation Center, I finally went last week. It was probably the most fun I have had in any one week in a long time. The activities were enjoyable,...More

Yes! You can absolutely find peace and quiet. You don't have to sign up for the adult activities either, but even still some of those are extremely relaxing and quiet (painting for example). You can sign up your daughter for activities she enjoys and either hang out on the local beaches, go downtown and shop, or relax in the room and read, basically you can do whatever you like!
One of our favorite parts of this is that you are not trapped anywhere. You can even get a gym pass to UCSB's fitness center for a workout, or walk along the miles of walking/hiking paths close by.
There is no adult pool, but there are plenty of downtimes where you will only find another family or two enjoying it.
