“SANTA CRUZ BEACH BOARDWALM”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is a great boardwalk, it has everything for all ages. It does not cost you a lot of money, good safe rides, the food is good. The beach is just a few steps away, you can swim, but a bit on the cold side.

“Wild Time”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

this is an excellent place to go for beach fun . I love the fact that they have indoor miniature golf if you get tired of being kissed by the sun. So many shops its blows my mind. Thank you for the Friday concert nights.

“fun day out!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

we are staying in aptos and drove over to santa cruz for the afternoon. the boardwalk is really charming. we rode on the log ride and the original wooden big dipper roller coaster. still a thriller. even after california screaming at Disney. food was great too. lots of variety and cheaper than Disney's tasteless offerings. lovely beach too. I'd definitely go again.
