For Santa Cruz locals

by Joker320

Im intrigued by Santa cruz and i have a few questions...

- What is the weather like year round? Is santa cruz considred the "sunny" area of the region?

- Is the nightlife entertaining? Santa cruz seems to be so much more interesting that boring silicon valley.

-What is the dating scene like? Silicon valley can be hell in the dating world from what ive read, but Santa cruz seems to be its own world(and far enough away) and im pretty sure they have an even ratio of males to females, and when i visited there seemed to be plenty of cute girls.

I can only answer to the weather. Especially in the summer Santa Cruz is typically sunnier, while the remainder of Monterey Bay is under a cloud layer that doesn't burnoff until later in the day.

It's supposed to be "Mediterranean" weather, meaning sunny and dry but not too hot, I suppose. Summer time fits this description, with nights usually a bit cooler. Winter is rainy and it can get pretty cold, but not freezing (except maybe in the mountains). And the fog is great! It can be there in the morning and burn off by afternoon, or come in during the night. Muahahahaha!!!

Travel Tips for Santa Cruz

The first quarter

by venteeocho

The first quarter released in 2005 honors California, and is the 31st in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program. California was admitted into the Union on September 9, 1850, becoming our Nation’s 31st State. Nicknamed the "Golden State," California’s quarter depicts naturalist and conservationist John Muir admiring Yosemite Valley’s monolithic granite headwall known as "Half Dome" and also contains a soaring California condor. The coin bears the inscriptions "California," "John Muir," "Yosemite Valley" and "1850."

In 1849, the year before California gained statehood, the family of 11-year-old John Muir emigrated from Scotland to the United States, settling in Wisconsin. In 1868, at the age of 30, Muir sailed up the West Coast and landed in San Francisco. He made his home in the Yosemite Valley, describing the Sierra Nevada Mountains as "the Range of Light… the most divinely beautiful of all the mountain chains I have seen." He devoted the rest of his life to the conservation of natural beauty, publishing more than 300 articles and 10 books that expanded his naturalist philosophy.

The 20-member California State Quarter Commission was formed to solicit design concepts from California citizens and to review all submissions. The Commission forwarded 20 design concepts to Governor Gray Davis’s office for further consideration. From these, five were chosen as finalists and sent for final review to the United States Mint. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger chose the final selection from this group of five. The four other design concepts considered included "Waves and Sun," "Gold Miner," "Golden Gate Bridge," and the "Giant Sequoia" design. The Department of Treasury approved the "John Muir/Yosemite Valley" design on April 15, 2004.

Santa Cruz Mountain Hamlets

by atufft

I also have pages for Felton, Mount Hermon, and Ben Lomond, three hamlets up Hwy 9 from Santa Cruz. This part of the county is home to reclusive folk who have antique stores, redwood burl and bear artistry, or otherwise hangout in the redwood forests. There are a variety of activities available, but just a drive up twisty Hwy 9 is worth a half day or more. There are also plenty of cabins and resort hotels in the Santa Cruz Mountains for those who want to get away from the din of the beach cities. Hwy 9 will continue through Boulder Creek and drop down into Saratoga, which is part of the Silicon Valley, so this is a good scenic route to San Francisco and San Jose. Check out my VT links below for more information.

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park

by karenincalifornia

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is located just north of Santa Cruz and consists of about 4,000 acres of old growth redwoods. The park has beautiful hiking trails (total 20 miles), and is a favorite of mountain bikers. Those who just want to relax and enjoy the scenery can drive to the visitor's center and purchase a ticket to ride on the Roaring Camp Railroad, an excursion steam train.

A little spicier you say?

by MDH about El Palomar

The El Palomar Restaurant is one of Santa Cruz's finest and maybe classiest Mexican restaurants. Located inside the art deco Palomar Building in its famous 1940s ballroom, the restaurant serves up a noisy Latin atmosphere and very tasty meals from south of the border.

Also within the restaurant is a bar, which can get very busy especially on weekend nights.

Monarch Butterflies

by jag17

A stroller and wheelchair accessible boardwalk take you down into the eucalyptus grove where close to 100,000 monarch butterflies migrate each winter. View the butterflies from mid-October to February.
