Santa Cruz

— 3 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Santa Cruz: Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard & Asilomar State Beach), Carmel (Wrath Tasting Room- Carmel & Point Lobos) and Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium & 17-Mile Drive). There's lots more to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, go for a walk through West Cliff Drive, stop by Bookshop Santa Cruz, and find something for the whole family at Cave Train.

To see reviews, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Santa Cruz trip planner.
