USED BOOKS!?!?! So I'm sitting there across the street eating my breakfast burrito. And I look across the street to see a used book store. It looks familiar yet kind of closed but I figure... What the hell! I'm in! I convince/drag the Mrs. through on coming traffic and step right on in. Apparently it only looks closed but the ...

This place does not bother putting on a pretty face, but what it lacks in appearance it makes up for in sheer quantity of music available (not just on vinyl but also on CDs and DVDs) for good prices. Definitely worth a browse.Popular withBudgetLocalBackpackers

I honestly just had a craving for a pastry. Now I have a bag of 10. Yay for my thighs! I don't know why this is good to note but the first thing I noticed when I walked in were all these blaring sighs saying they were now open until 7 PM. So for all your Santa Cruzans, they're open ...

Nice, mellow wave just to the east of the "Hook" at Pleasure Point. It's a little more out in open water than other nearby breaks, which I presume is how it got the "shark" name, but still pretty protected by the thick kelp growth of the area. This was the first place I ever surfed that had kelp directly in ...Popular withOutdoorBackpackers

This review is solely for the carousel - not even sure why the roller coaster is included here, that should be listed separately. Gorgeous large and historic carousel with beautifully maintained animals. People scramble for the animals on the outer row so they can "go for the brass ring" and toss it at the clown. It's amazing how some younger ...Popular withFamilies

I love surfing here. There is no real beach to hang out on, but the waves are really long and clean, and its usually less crowded than some of the other breaks in Santa Cruz. There is a lot of kelp here, though, which creeps some people out. You park in a little parking lot towards the end of 41st ...Popular withOutdoorSpiritualAdventure

This is a great place to grab a game with friends - lots of tables, a jukebox, and a good selection of appetizers and drinks. Lots of fun and great service. Great sweet potato fries.Popular withLocalStudentsNightlife

Super dive. Smoking is allowed inside. Lots of locals, even on a Mon afternoon. Everyone is friendly and talks with everyone - got some great local restaurant recommendations! Had $3 draft beers and $5 cocktails. Cash only. Pool table. Just wish they didn't smoke.Popular withLocal

Before and after your ride the Big Dipper at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, you can drive the Highway 17 Roller coaster both ways. But despite the sometimes scary ride, I love the challenge and the scenery along the way. Also, if Gayle and I have a little more time, we prefer to come down the San Mateo Coast on ...
