Santa Cruz is world-renowned for its surfing
, but there’s another local water sport that boasts a similarly rich legacy and devoted following. Peer out over the Monterey Bay
and you’ll see that sailboats dot the waves nearly as frequently as surfboards. Like other sailing communities throughout the nation, Santa Cruz hosts a weekly fun and informal regatta that trades trophies for bragging rights and seriousness for six-packs.
From now until May 31, 2017, Santa Cruz County fans can enter the “Let’s Cruz Vacation Getaway Contest” for a chance to win a two-night stay at Seascape Beach Resort and a tailored activity package based on a fun and creative personality test! So enter to win and see what your perfect Santa Cruz vacation will be!
This weekend marked the officially, unofficial 'we're only wearing flip flops on Saturdays and Sundays, I only eat al fresco at restaurants' time of year in Santa Cruz County. The weather was perfect, the sun now feels like it's shining longer upon us, and everyone around town had that relaxed summertime feeling. Check out some of the best weekend views with this edition of #MyWeekendInSantaCruz.
Let’s face it, not all weekends are created equal. Work demands, house projects, weather conditions, obligatory events - they all have a way of foiling those dreamy weekend plans. But there’s always someone, somewhere, doing awesome things and we took the pleasure of finding a few folks who nailed their weekend in Santa Cruz County. So take a peek and get inspired so you can say, “this is my weekend in Santa Cruz!”

Santa Cruz has built up its reputation for superior craft beer
and artisanal spirits
in recent years, but don’t forget that we bubble over with sparkling wine too! As any champagne lover knows, sparkling wine is meant to be enjoyed anytime, not just on special occasions. Yet with Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we couldn’t help but recommend two exceptional, handcrafted sparklers made in Santa Cruz County.
