We are a mere 2-minute walk away from stunning Seacliff State Beach. It’s an excellent destination for fishing, swimming, and picnicking, and features a long fishing pier that extends far into the Pacific Ocean. The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park lies within the steep coastal mountains and is home to tall, majestic redwood trees. Embark on one of the parks many trails for a peaceful escape. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is famous for a reason. Beyond its pristine sands and deep blue waters, you’ll discover rides, games, attractions for all ages. For a fun excursion, take a ride on the Roaring Camp Railroad. The steam trail travels through the stunning Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park into the San Lorenzo River Gorge, passing through a tunnel built in 1975. You can discover restaurants, cafés, ice-cream shops, and boutiques when you walk down Downtown Santa Cruz’s tree-lined streets.
