Santa Cruz — 5 nights

Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Cruz: Point Lobos (in Carmel), Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach & Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard) and Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17-Mile Drive, &more). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the world behind art at Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, take in the waterfront activity at Santa Cruz Harbor, and enjoy the sand and surf at Santa Cruz Main Beach.

For maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Santa Cruz day trip planner.

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