Santa Cruz County Info

IT IS TIME TO GET YOUR “CRUZ” ON!


Santa Cruz County offers 29 miles of sun-drenched coastline and some California’s best beaches, perfect for surfing or volleyball. Find your inspiration on sun-soaked beaches in Santa Cruz.

A wealth of things to do – from surfing to hiking in a coastal redwood forest to discovering a hip, new restaurant – can be found here. An abundance of year-around events happening every week – many of them free – combined with natural beauty off scenic Highway 1 adjacent to the Monterey Bay make Santa Cruz California’s quintessential beach vacation.

But the fun only starts at the beach! Visit a beach boardwalk or a museum or art gallery, go wine tasting, ride a steam train, view redwoods or attend a local event.
