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 Monterey (Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, Monterey Bay Aquarium, &more), Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard & Asilomar State Beach) and Carmel (Carmel River State Beach, Point Lobos, &more). There's lots more to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, get in on the family fun at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, immerse yourself in nature at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, and take in the waterfront activity at Santa Cruz Harbor.

For other places to visit, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Santa Cruz day trip site.

In May in Santa Cruz, expect temperatures between 69°F during the day and 49°F at night.
