Santa Cruz Travel Tips & Suggestions

I love it here. I go every year. — Anonymous
Santa Cruz is a touch of California class, but if you want to stay longer than three nights, don't stay at the youth hostel, they won't let you book another night. — Steve
Santa Cruz is awesome. Try to visit the small towns up in the mountains like Ben Lomand, Felton, Bouldercreek, and Brookdale. — Anonymous
If you wanna surf, Steamer Lane sucks. Too many locals ripping sh*t up. — Anonymous
The Seymore Marine Research Center and the Natural Bridges State Park where the Monarch butterflies swarm and mate are here. Both worth a visit. The Santa Cruz boardwalk is terrific. We went swimming and sunbathing in October and had a great time. — Sierra Nevada visitor
Santa Cruz is sooo much fun! — Alyssa
Pack a sweater! Because Santa Cruz is in California and a beach town, many people think it will be warm and sunny. Actually, it can get surprisingly cold. Also, don't count on swimming in the ocean, unless you wear a wetsuit. As with most of Northern California beaches, the water is freezing. — Anonymous
