Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Get outdoors at Point Lobos and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get some historical perspective at Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard and Carmel Mission. Venture out of the city with trips to Carmel (Sunset Cultural Center & Carmel Art Association), National Steinbeck Center (in Salinas) and Monterey (17-Mile Drive & Monterey Bay Aquarium). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Canepa Motorsports Museum, look for gifts at Pezzini Farms, and get in on the family fun at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

For more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Santa Cruz journey app .

In June, daytime highs in Santa Cruz are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
