Would ya look at that! Santa Cruz County made the cover of the 2016 Visit California Visitor’s Guide! What an honor! The Guide cover photo was taken at 4 Mile Beach – a beach located, you guessed it, 4 miles north of Santa Cruz. The beach is part of Wilder Ranch State Park and shows how the northern county beaches have their own distinct flavor – think more rugged coastline, lots of native plants, and tons of sweeping views of uninterrupted nature. Needless to say, we are thrilled that Visit California chose Santa Cruz County as their locale for their 2016 cover. We hope this inspires many to come see us in 2016!
