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 Bay Aquarium, 17-Mile Drive, &more), Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard & Asilomar State Beach) and Point Lobos (in Carmel). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, find something for the whole family at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waddell Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Panther Beach.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Santa Cruz day trip site.

In July in Santa Cruz, expect temperatures between 73°F during the day and 55°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
