Santa Cruz Shore

On our trip to Las Vegas, to wanted to drive through several cities on the west coast.
So we chose Sacramento, San Jose, Santa Cruz, and Santa Barbara...

Santa Cruz was pretty nice... but it seemed empty and abandoned. there were barely people on the beach.
the bay area looked fascinating because of its big theme park, the game arena, beachball fields and the long peer.

i just knew santa cruz because of its skate/surf brand. as soon as we got out of our car, we could feel the heat in santa cruz. we loved it, we took off our shirts, and presented our pale body to the sun :). we started with the arcade battle at the game hall, we had a good time, because we don't really have a good game hall over here in our country. we went on to the local surf shop, but some clothes, and had lunch at a restaurant on the peer, with a nice ocean view.

i can imagine that the hotel prices aren't that high in santa cruz, if there aren't too many tourists in SC. i would surely spend one or two nights in santa cruz on my next trip to california. just to lay back, and enjoy the sounds of the waves and the seagulls. above the peer we could observe lots of surfers in the water. the shore was really beautiful.

santa cruz be aware, we'll be back pretty soon !

welcome to Santa Cruz! yeah, the summer time is the busiest season in this town, but it's a nice place to visit all year round!
