  • Extremely nice harbor. It's well in use through out the day. There's tons to see if you walk through it. There are usually harbor seals.
  • Nice place to walk around. Watch boats coming in and out, padleboarders. Few small shops and restaurants have food, snacks, coffee and gifts.
  • Website is outdated. Water taxi stopped on labor day.
  • Gorgeous
  • Awesome location! Worth the wait!

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.
