Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz ©
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Family-friendly places like 17-Mile Drive and Asilomar State Beach will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Carmel (Carmel River State Beach & Point Lobos), Bird Rock Vista Point (in Pebble Beach) and Monterey Bay Aquarium (in Monterey). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, admire the majestic nature at Wilder Ranch State Park, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Seymour Marine Discovery Center, and kick your exploration up a notch at Mount Hermon Adventures.

To see photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Santa Cruz trip planner.

In October in Santa Cruz, expect temperatures between 76°F during the day and 51°F at night.
