  • Mellow surfing, great views, and within walking distance of a couple decent places to eat. The sunsets here are off the charts in the late summer and fall.
  • Evolution of public beaches and access in California is exemplified by this stunning boardwalk and little crannies.
  • Refreshing walk. Do take bicycles, its the best place to ride and enjoy the scenery.
  • Great surf here. Beautiful place.
  • An awesome place to watch the sunset!

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Most of the accommodations in Santa Cruz occupy a place near the beach and boardwalk. Inns and bed and breakfasts make up most of the selection here, but you'll also find a few motels and hotels sprinkled in. You might consider staying in one of the inns or bed and breakfasts located inside some of the Victorian houses downtown, which lies just to the north. A number of budget motels line both San Lorenzo Boulevard, which is just across Carbonara Creek from the main tourist area by the beach, and Ocean Street a little farther north.
