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 Moto Talbott. Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Point Lobos. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Cruz: Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach & Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard), Carmel (Carmel Art Association, Photography West Gallery, &more) and Pebble Beach Golf Links (in Pebble Beach). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Steinbeck House / Best Cellar Gift Shop, take an in-depth tour of Colton Hall Museum, cruise along 17-Mile Drive, and explore the world behind art at Casa Serrano, Historic Adobe.
