Out and About in Santa Cruz

The liberal, relaxed feel of Santa Cruz will amplify your desire to sunbathe in a lounge chair for hours on end at Main Beach. When you start itching to see the best sights in and around Santa Cruz, you won't have to go far. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is just a few minutes away from hotels near Cocoanut Grove, and the mile-long amusement park is a fantastic stop for kids and adults alike. For the more investigative traveler, check out the nearby Monterey Bay Marine Park, or the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum, likely close to your Santa Cruz hotel or resort. When it's time to leave the sun, there are plenty of art galleries, shops, and theaters as well.

Eating and Drinking

Santa Cruz is world-renowned for its alternative culture, which you'll experience as soon as you set foot on Pacific Avenue. Restaurants at the Municipal Wharf serve delicious tacos, the catch of the day, or a fusion twist on Thai dishes. Local pubs and nightclubs feature signature drinks with the best tequilas, often paired with live music. Fortunately, you'll find tons of hotels near the beach in Santa Cruz if the nightlife gets the best of you.
