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 (17-Mile Drive, Cannery Row, & more), Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach, Pacific Grove Certified Farmers' Market, & more) and Pebble Beach (Bird Rock Vista Point, Pebble Beach Golf Links, & more). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Pinnacles National Park. And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at UCSC Arboretum, admire the majestic nature at Point Lobos, and take in the waterfront at Santa Cruz Wharf.

For where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Santa Cruz trip planner .

In July, daily temperatures in Santa Cruz can reach 73°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
