I really can't complain about how I spent my weekend...Friday I was at the beach until the evening, Saturday I was in the warm sun and redwoods in Scotts Valley and Felton, and on Sunday I travelled south to Seascape for some wide-angle beach views. But regardless of how much I squeezed in there's always room for more! Check out how some of our fans spent their weekend in Santa Cruz and let it inspire you for your next visit!
WEEKEND OF MARCH 31 thru April 2
April 1st was the kick-off of the Scotts Valley Farmer's Market season! Live Earth Farm was there with delicious ripe strawberries and the weather was a perfect warm welcome for the season opener. Stop by the Scotts Valley Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9am - 1pm from now until November 19th!

My love for this next photo might be a little bit of van envy, but this bright green Westfalia was living the good life at Big Basin over the weekend. Who else is ready for the camping season!?

This young little pup is as cute as can be hanging around Roaring Camp Railroads over the weekend. Did you know that Roaring Camp is pooch friendly? He can even hop on board the train for some redwood riding! Although I think @BenjiThePompoo might have just slept the whole ride...

The wide beaches of south county always have that hidden treasure feel. That less crowded feel + the excellent wind conditions made for perfect kite flying. And the photo isn't half bad either!

Wildflowers are everywhere right now...like even on rocky walls! Wilder Ranch State Park is a perfect place to enjoy the super bloom happening all around the county and state! #CaliforniaBlooms
