Santa Cruz beach boardwalk: summer fun for the whole family!

The admission-free, family-friendly Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a classic seaside amusement park. Overlooking Main Beach in Santa Cruz, the boardwalk was built in 1907 as the “Coney Island of the West Coast” and features two national historic landmarks: the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster and the Looff Carousel. These classics join over 40 rides and amusements at this landmark attraction. Enjoy the indoor arcade at Neptune’s Kingdom, miniature golf, gift shops, and classic boardwalk treats like funnel cakes, deep-fried Twinkies®, churros, kettle corn, cotton candy, saltwater taffy, and more.

Beginning Wednesday nights at 9PM from June 20 - August 15, 2018, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk continues its free weekly summer movies on the beach series. Kicking things off this year is The Lost Boys - a Santa Cruz classic that was filmed at the boardwalk and surrounding landmarks. Other movie favorites set to hit the beach this summer are Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Legally Blonde, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and more! So bring your beach towel, kick back, and enjoy!

And on Friday nights at 6:30PM and 8:30PM beginning on June 15th and continuing through August 31st, the boardwalk hosts its annual free summer concert series. The 2018 bands on the beach include Berlin starring Terri Nunn, The Motels, Los Lobos, Smash Mouth, Blue Öyster Cult, Papa Doo Run Run, and many more!
