There's something pretty spectacular about being able to watch whales from your beach chair. Take it from me, last weekend's cloudy beach day at Santa Maria's was nothing short of amazing as the giants lunged and breached less than 100 feet from the water's edge.

A Morning at Manresa State Beach...

Gorgeous sunsets are pretty standard in Santa Cruz County. They're easy to catch, usually full of vibrant colors and pretty much always worth a look. Our sunrises are equally beautiful, but let's be honest, not all of us are willing to sacrifice that last hour or two of shut eye to see them! Well thanks to @dannyburg we've got a nice little glimpse into yesterday's moonset over Manresa State Beach. And Danny, your early morning surf session seemed well worth the sacrifice with this view!

Among Santa Cruz’s best kept secrets, the Loch Lomond Recreation Area might be the most spectacular. Hidden amidst the lush redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the glistening lake draws visitors with scenery, serenity, and activities such as boating, picnicking, and hiking. And now that Loch Lomond is open for the first time in three years (thanks, El Niño!), it’s the perfect time to discover this awesome recreation area. And no, you won’t find any sea monsters.

Are you Team Pokémon GO or Team Pokemon Go Away? There are probably three different responses to this question: 1. Team Pokémon GO; 2. Team Pokémon Go Away; or 3. What are you even talking about!? Whatever your response, we decided to give Pokémon GO a quick 15 minutes and highlight a few recent visitors to the area.

With majestic palm trees, cool bay breezes and stunning waterfront views, is there a more exhilarating way to see Santa Cruz’s shoreline than on two wheels? We recently teamed up with Noelle Stearns, Events Coordinator at The Dream Inn, to cruise West Cliff Drive, a ridiculously scenic promenade that links the best of Santa Cruz’s scenery, history and attractions.
