Planning Your Beach Escape, Adventure and Memories
So you've made it to the quintessential California beach town of Santa Cruz. Now what?
The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a must-see attraction for kids, kids at heart and Lost Boys fans around the world. If heart-pounding roller coasters aren't your thing, there's always laser tag at the Casino Arcade, miniature golf at Neptune's Kingdom or a family game of bowling at the Boardwalk Bowl.

For the perfect beach escape, plan a stay at the newly renovated Beach Street Inn and Suites. Located within walking distance of the Boardwalk and Municipal Wharf, you'll be right in the heart of oceanfront fun, including restaurants, shops and Main Beach.
