Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz ©
Santa Cruz remains synonymous with surfing, but this counterculture bastion offers plenty even if you don't plan to catch any waves.
Family-friendly places like 17-Mile Drive and Dolphin & Whale Watching will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Monterey Bay Aquarium (in Monterey), Carmel (Carmel River State Beach & Point Lobos) and Bird Rock Vista Point (in Pebble Beach). There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Mount Hermon Adventures, admire the majestic nature at Wilder Ranch State Park, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Seymour Marine Discovery Center, and kick back and relax at Asilomar State Beach.

To see photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Santa Cruz trip planner.

In October in Santa Cruz, expect temperatures between 76°F during the day and 51°F at night.
