Santa Cruz

— 11 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Carmel Mission and Gallery by the Sea Carmel. Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Point Lobos. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Cruz: Pebble Beach Golf Links (in Pebble Beach), Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach & Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard) and Carmel (Carmel Art Association, Photography West Gallery, &more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of The Steinbeck House / Best Cellar Gift Shop, take a memorable drive along 17-Mile Drive, examine the collection at Canepa Motorsports Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Casa Serrano, Historic Adobe.
