Beach Town on a Budget at the Comfort Inn Santa Cruz

Comfort Inn Santa Cruz Photo: Seraphina Landgrebe When you stay at the Comfort Inn Santa Cruz, located at the crossroads of Highways 1 and 17, you are perfectly positioned to enjoy all of Santa Cruz County's attractions. Comfort Inn Santa Cruz Photo: Seraphina Landgrebe Families will love starting the day with a complimentary hot breakfast. Grab a table or pull up a chair at the breakfast bar and start planning your day. Here are a few ideas that are only a short 10-minute drive away: Arboretum at UC Santa Cruz The Arboretum at UC Santa Cruz is open every day from 9 to 5, except Thanksgiving and Christmas. A self-guided tour may take you from carnivorous plants to a redwood grove, and the Hummingbird Trail is especially popular with children. You may want to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at the tables and benches sprinkled throughout the grounds, and binoculars are a must for birdwatching enthusiasts. Be sure to stop by Norrie's Gift and Garden Shop for the perfect treasure or plant to remember your visit. Little known fact: You can have your wedding at the Arboretum! The Mystery Spot is fun for all ages and has been a visitor favorite for nearly 75 years! The laws of physics and gravity, as you know them, will cease to exist during your 45-minute tour through this "gravitational anomaly" in the redwood forest. Purchasing tickets online or over the phone is highly recommended, as tours frequently sell out. While you're waiting, or after your tour, check out the Mystery Spot Hiking Trail, which will take you on a 30-minute journey through native California plant and animal life...and don't forget to get your official Mystery Spot bumper sticker! Giant Dipper Photo: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Like good wine, our coastal attractions get better with age--it must be the salt air and cool ocean breeze. Celebrating milestone anniversaries this year are the Santa Cruz Harbor (50 years), world-famous Giant Dipper roller coaster (90 years), and the Santa Cruz Wharf with a whopping 100 years! Take your pick and be a part of history! You'll also enjoy a variety of restaurants, shops and beaches nearby, plus some special events throughout the year.

Unwind at the heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna...or perhaps the whirlpool tub in your suite. The Comfort Inn Santa Cruz is your answer to a budget-friendly beach town escape.
