Santa Cruz — 4 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 Point Lobos (in Carmel), Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium & 17-Mile Drive) and Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard (in Pacific Grove). The adventure continues: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, stop by Bookshop Santa Cruz, find something for the whole family at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and take in the waterfront activity at Santa Cruz Harbor.

To find photos, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Santa Cruz road trip website.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 57°F.
