    Excellent brewery nestled in the suburbs of Capitola. Sante Adairius Rustic Ales offers a small range of delicious brews, from the hoppy 831 West Coast IPA to the Lucybelle Saison. Beer brewers will love the specificity of the menu, stating the exact hops they use in each beer. Get a taster for a sample or purchase a growler to take ...

    Two floors of pool tables, a full bar and a rockin good time are what you'll find at Fast Eddy's. Happy hour is 4-6:30pm every night with a decent selection of beers on tap. The atmosphere inside is rather dark and pub-like, but in no way do you ever feel closed in. The place exudes lots of local character and ...

    Limited in size, marginal surf, this beach adds to the aesthetic appeal of Capitola but offers no enticement of its own.

    The Giant Dipper

    3.51 mi from Monarch Butterfly Trail
    15 reviews

    The mark of a great roller coaster is getting that momentary "Oh Shit" feeling at the top and then getting right back in line when the ride is over. I'm partial to my home town roller coaster located in Arnold's Park Iowa. However, the Big Dipper is even better and worth every minute of the trip and wait to hop ...

    This is one of the best surf breaks in California. If you are a surfer paddle out with care, as it is localized. If you just want to watch pros doing aerials there is great viewing from the cliffs above.

    YES, exactly what walter p said.. Though my recollection is kind of hazy of that entire weekend with the crew i'm pretty sure I had a great time. Nothing like a roaring bonfire, bbq food, good weather, and most importantly my friends keeping me fed and drunk. BTW don't ask me how I know this but you can show up ...

    Mystery Spot

    3.93 mi from Monarch Butterfly Trail
    42 reviews

    Mystery Spot is a Santa Cruz institution. You'll probably see a bunch of yellow and black bumper stickers on cars around town with MYSTERY SPOT in bold letters. Once you pay the nominal admission fee (I think $5) you're placed into a small group and guided around the "spot" by a docent. Ours was a very young woman with a ...

    Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf

    3.8 mi from Monarch Butterfly Trail
    23 reviews

    The wharf is pretty touristy, but it's still worth checking out. Olita's has delicious margaritas, and there's a few places that serve decent chowder. Otherwise, seeing the sea lions is the most exciting thing about this place.

    Surfing was first introduced to Santa Cruz by the Hawaiian Princes. Lots of surf facts and memorabilia at the museum. Right outside is where a lot of surfers hang out and catch waves.

    Great beach to hang out, play in the sand, surf, and just relax. Every so often you may find Bill from Santa Cruz Sands down on the beach making sand castles and sand writing.

    Perhaps the best place in Santa Cruz to take a walk or ride your bike. There are great views of the ocean. Particularly nice when the surfers are out.
