Santa Cruz

— 3 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Santa Cruz Wharf. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Carmel River State Beach and West Cliff Drive. Visiting Dolphin & Whale Watching and Natural Bridges State Beach will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Cruz: Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail (in Monterey), Carmel (Photography West Gallery, Wyland Gallery Carmel, &more) and Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach, Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, &more). It doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Wilder Ranch State Park.

In April, daytime highs in Santa Cruz are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 46°F.
