Santa Cruz

— 17 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Discover out-of-the-way places like West Cliff Drive and Natural Bridges State Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Cruz: Carmel (Carmel Beach Boardwalk, Carmel Mission, &more), Big Sur (Pfeiffer State Beach, McWay Falls, &more) and Pacific Grove (Lovers Point, Asilomar State Beach, &more). Spend the 10th (Sun) exploring nature at Pinnacles National Park. There's much more to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, delve into the mystery of Mystery Spot, admire the majestic nature at Mission San Juan Bautista, and stroll through Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail.

Plan my day in Santa Cruz using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 68°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
