Santa Cruz

— 7 nights
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
You've added Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery, Mount Hermon Adventures, Nickelodeon Theatre, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kids will enjoy Monterey Bay Aquarium and Santa Cruz Wharf. Go for a jaunt from Santa Cruz to Monterey to see Dennis the Menace Park about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, delve into the mystery of Mystery Spot, and go for a stroll along the water at Santa Cruz Harbor.

To find reviews, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read Santa Cruz online trip planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 23rd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
