We spend a full day at Santa Cruz this past summer. After we spent a week in Carlsbad this summer, the kiddos had been asking to go to the beach with waves again! We finally made it happen and spend a great day in Santa Cruz. We met up with some friends that like in Palo Alto and had a great time. The kiddos were so happy playing in the sand and water that we never even made it to the boardwalk. Ha! maybe next time we will ride a roller coaster, play some games and get some pizza!
This place does not disappoint. I am sure we will make this an annual summer trip for our family! Who knows, we might even hit up the boardwalk next time.
