Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, CA

nullThe city of Santa Cruz, California is known for its moderate climate, natural beauty, amazing coastline and redwood forest.

This sleepy beach town is within a one-hour driving distance from San Francisco or San Jose. 

You can certainly make Santa Cruz a stop on your Bay area itinerary, but I think it deserves to be its own destination. There is so much to do and see – you can easily spend a week without getting bored.
