Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Cruz: Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17-Mile Drive, &more) and Carmel (Carmel Beach Boardwalk & Point Lobos). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, cruise along West Cliff Drive, and find something for the whole family at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
