Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Santa Cruz: Carmel (Point Lobos, Carmel River State Beach, & more), Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17-Mile Drive, & more) and Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, Asilomar State Beach, & more). Spend the 5th (Sun) exploring nature at Pinnacles National Park. There's still lots to do: cruise along West Cliff Drive, get in on the family fun at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, take in the waterfront at Santa Cruz Wharf, and kick back and relax at Natural Bridges State Beach.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Santa Cruz trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 63°F in December, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
