Santa Cruz County covers a lot of scenic ground. And while nothing beats a good hike, bike or swim, sometimes a lazy drive is the best way to see it all. When we’re out exploring, we love referencing Mobile Ranger
, a free locally-designed app and informative website that links forgotten stories and curious facts with the places that surround us. Below, we’ve shared some of our favorite scenic drives — as well as ways to enhance your outings with Mobile Ranger — because you know Santa Cruz will never steer you wrong.
