Walked the boardwalk and had fun people watching and visiting a couple of the vendors who were open. The salt water taffy is delicious. The ice cream was tasty but pricey. NIce to have the smell of popcorn. Certainly missed the rides but still a good place to visit.

Although there was a lot of stores that were closed, we still had a great time visiting. It was clean and quiet just some people are not wearing masks properly. We will comeback so we can enjoy the rest of the stores, rides once it opens back up.

We returned to have fun at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz on a delightful sunny July day. We loved riding some rides, having some snacks, and enjoying the scenic views of the Pacific Ocean. Many others were there too. While some rides were closed due to the virus, we still had a wonderful time.
