    Go to my pages on Santa Cruz which is wll covered there, but basically, Santa Cruz is about one hour's drive north of Monterey on the northern shore of Monterey Bay. Monterey is the more famous of the two tourist areas, but Santa Cruz will easily rival its southern neighbor for things to do. Besides the Beach Boardwalk, downtown Santa Cruz has plenty of hip style shopping and great restaurants. Santa Cruz has better beaches, that face south, and plenty of action for younger tourists. Prices are slightly lower, and the surf action one of the world's best.
