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: Carmel (Seventeen Mile Drive, Carmel Art Association, & more), Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more) and Pacific Grove (Asilomar State Beach & Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and take in the views from Bixby Bridge.

To find ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Santa Cruz trip itinerary maker site .

Expect a daytime high around 72°F in June, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
