Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Sat): cruise along 17-Mile Drive, make a trip to Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, and then do a tasting at MJA Vineyards. Keep things going the next day: admire the landmark architecture of San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Mission, admire the majestic nature at Point Lobos, and then get to know the fascinating history of Cannery Row.

For more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Santa Cruz trip maker app .

July in Santa Cruz sees daily highs of 73°F and lows of 55°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
