Santa Cruz

— 8 nights
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: Monterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium, Casa Serrano, Historic Adobe, &more), Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, Pacific Grove Shoreline Parkway Marine Refuge, &more) and Carmel (Scenic Road Walkway, Point Lobos, &more). There's lots more to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, stroll through Pleasure Point Beach, take in the pleasant sights at West Cliff Drive, and immerse yourself in nature at Seabright State Beach.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Santa Cruz travel route planner.

Expect a daytime high around 74°F in August, and nighttime lows around 57°F.
