We want to take a moment and remind everyone to help keep Santa Cruz County beautiful! With 29 miles of coastline, well over a dozen state parks, and the gorgeous Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Cruz County has a lot of natural beauty to offer its locals and visitors. But with these prestine natural wonders comes a great responsibility to keep them the way they are intended – clean and trash-free! Please remember to always #PackYourTrash when visiting the beaches and parks. And note, there are some beaches and parks that do not have trash receptacles, so it’s imperative that you come prepared to pack up your trash and take it with you.
Since the surf-crazed 1960s, the Dream Inn hotel has delighted visitors with its beachfront setting and immediate proximity to iconic local attractions such as the Santa Cruz Wharf and Beach Boardwalk-both clearly visible from each of the property’s guest rooms. Now, the sunny property welcomes guests with a spiffy new renovation of its 165 rooms, pool deck, and lobby. Enter our spring vacation giveaway, and you can experience it for yourself with a free two-night stay at the Dream Inn!
Vacations often involve cramming as many activities as possible into a three-day weekend. We zip through the local’s favorites, pose for selfies with the tourist attractions, and snap artfully arranged shots of avocado toast and acai bowls consumed between mugs of artisanal coffee. It’s all about checking things off our bucket list, filling our Instagram feed, and, for those with kids in tow, finding creative ways to avoid a meltdown.
While we’re huge fans of both the bucket list and sharing experiences on social media, there is another way to experience both a new place and the familiar haunts you thought you knew like the back of your smartphone.
