    This was the rollercoaster that I grew up on. Going to the boardwalk was such a fun thing to do when I was growing up. Although now that I'm older I see how rundown and expensive it has become, I will never forget all of the memories I created there when I was growing up.

    Good size beach for the family, whether it is getting a tan on the sand or swimming in the surf. The waves are good for body surfing.

    Small family-owned winery tasting room is off a side street behind the Patagonia outlet store in Santa Cruz. It's only open on weekends usually, and the industrial space is kind of a squeeze. But wow, these wines! We are not the type to like everything that's poured at any winery, but there was honestly not a bad pour in the ...

    Off Hwy 1 west of downtown and the UCSC campus, this young local winemaker's tasting room is a friendly place. The vintages show promise, though nothing seemed to be a knockout except the Pinot noir (and that was comparatively overpriced for the region). Loved the winery dog, Buster!

    Located inside the Pono Hawaiian Grill, The Reef Bar has a large selection of alcoholic beverages, including various speciality drinks and selections from the "I DARE YOU" drink menu. Happy hour is from 3-6pm daily, and if there isn't any live music on stage, then there's always something playing on their 160" projection screen. Great island atmosphere and good times!

    This is an old school "skate" park with a shallow spoon and snake run concrete feature. Locals will pop airs off the hip 1-2 feet out. Once you take a couple of runs you'll get used to the inconsistent transitions. This used to be a mecca during the outlaw years of the '80s, so now it's a great place to ...

    Some might call it a "dive bar", but it's actually just a great bar with few concessions to the non-essential. What is does have is fantastic bartenders, great people, state of the art jukebox. This is a home away from home for the locals that drink here, and the few visitors that find it are welcome. Great parking out back.
