A hidden gem on campus is the arboretum. They have a wonderful array of plants from Australia and New Zealand. The gardens are gorgeous and you shouldn't miss the hummingbird walk--amazing!

The only reason we drove through was because it currently shows up as the #1 attraction in Santa Cruz. It was fairly nice being in the country and not in town, but we didn't see it as an attraction.

A dreamy fairly-tale campus, with deer roaming around. Worth a visit if you are in the area for more than one day. If you are visiting for a day, just stay at the beach.

This is a stunning campus in the midst of the redwood forest. It has a great ambience, and there are wild deer everywhere. Have yet to see the elusive banana slug.

There is a arboretum ($5. entry fee) that is enormous and beautiful - Lots of hilly walking. It was just fun to drive through the campus because it is so nice.
