Located along California’s scenic Central Coast, Santa Cruz is renowned for its beautiful beaches and nearby redwood forests. Santa Cruz is home to both the University of California and Cabrillo College. It thus has the cosmopolitan appeal of a college town, as well as the ambiance of a small coastal California city. The cultural life of Santa Cruz is diverse and progressive. The downtown area has a myriad of shops to explore and some of the best bookstores in California. Year-round festivals along our famous boardwalk add a plethora of activities to enjoy and remember.
