Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History
There’s always something happening. All year long they host truly ‘only-in-Santa-Cruz’ events and exhibitions.
Lovely was to spend some time downtown. Not only the museum but many restaurants and shops. Enjoy people watching.
Great little museum, be sure to stop at the attached Abbott Square market for lunch or a snack afterwards.

“Great museum for kids and adults. Climb the cement whale out front and take a picture.”
“With more than 35 miles of trail, you can adventure into the Santa Cruz Mountains or walk along the coastal bluffs. Head half a mile down Old Cove Landing Trail to the scenic overlook above Wilder Beach, a snowy plover preserve. Just beyond, you’ll find Old Cove Landing, where schooners anchored in the 1800s. Continue along the coast on the Ohlone Bluff Trail to post 8, where there’s a spur trail leading to Fern Grotto Beach.”
“The Admission-Free Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! Enjoy warm sand, cool surf, hot rides and free entertainment”
“Extremely popular, and for a good reason. Excellent food, outdoor drinks and dining in good weather, and great view of the harbor and ocean.”
