Santa Cruz

Life is pretty cruisey in the place where surfing was first brought to mainland USA.

Best known for its surf culture, Santa Cruz is where the cool kids hang out. Walk along the coastline and it won’t just be surfers you spot loving the waves, you might see migrating sea creatures too. Feel free to join them in the water on a diving adventure. If you prefer solid land under your feet, visit one of the local parks. You’ll find there is no shortage of green spaces and outdoor activities here, so cruise on through with your skateboard, rollerblades or bike.
