COVID-19: How To Enjoy A Weekend Right Outside Santa Cruz

November 14, 2020

Santa Cruz is one of my favorite local destinations. In particular, I love the amusement park rides at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and its proximity to the beach. Unfortunately, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is mostly closed (at time of writing) due to COVID-19. On the flip side, I see it as an opportunity to explore some other places around Santa Cruz. In particular, I recently visited Capitola and its smaller surrounding towns, and I highly recommend a visit if you haven’t visited before. Read on for my recommendations for a chill, COVID-safe weekend right outside Santa Cruz!
