Santa Cruz

— 9 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Venture out of the city with trips to Monterey (The Cannery Row Monument, Monterey Bay Aquarium, &more), Carmel (Carmel River State Beach, Point Lobos, &more) and Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Certified Farmers' Market, Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, &more). There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, do a tasting at MJA Vineyards, stroll through Waddell Beach, and take a leisurely stroll along Santa Cruz Wharf.
