Santa Cruz Hotel & Travel Guide

Welcome to Santa Cruz! Known for its surfing culture, lively boardwalk, and delicious eats, this California coastal city draws in visitors year-round. With soft, sandy beaches, a temperate climate, and museums dedicated to the city's wave-riding pastime, you'll need to plan more than a few days to take in Santa Cruz's sights. Book one of Travelocity's cheap hotels in Santa Cruz and experience all the fun and culture this beachy city has to offer.

Out and About in Santa Cruz

The liberal, relaxed feel of Santa Cruz will amplify your desire to sunbathe in a lounge chair for hours on end at Main Beach. When you start itching to see the best sights in and around Santa Cruz, you won't have to go far. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is just a few minutes away from hotels near Cocoanut Grove, and the mile-long amusement park is a fantastic stop for kids and adults alike. For the more investigative traveler, check out the nearby Monterey Bay Marine Park, or the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum, likely close to one of the motels in Santa Cruz. When it's time to leave the sun, there are plenty of art galleries, shops, and theaters as well.

Eating and Drinking

Santa Cruz is world-renowned for its alternative culture, which you'll experience as soon as you set foot on Pacific Avenue. Restaurants at the Municipal Wharf serve delicious tacos, the catch of the day, or a fusion twist on Thai dishes. Local pubs and nightclubs feature signature drinks with the best tequilas, often paired with live music. Fortunately, you'll find tons of hotels near the beach in Santa Cruz if the nightlife gets the best of you.
