We'll be visiting for the first time in April with two five year-old boys. Should we stay one night and just hang out at the Boardwalk and Mystery Point (?) while in Santa Cruz?
Or stay longer? What do you think about Bonfante Gardens in Gilroy?
And any hotel suggestions? we don't mnd paying up to $200 per night, but would like something in a central, "fun" area.
We've been to Monterey before and probably won't do the aquarium this time.
We might do the Redwoods though since we haven't been there before.
