My Favorite free things to do in Santa Cruz! How to enjoy the best that this seaside town has to offer without spending a dime.
Okay, so maybe Santa Cruz doesn’t have as much going on as Los Angeles, San Francisco, or San Diego. And maybe I’m a little biased being that I was born and raised here, but I do believe that Santa Cruz is a place that you should visit at least once in your lifetime.
Sure, it’s a small beach town like many that exist on the West Coast of California, but the city has its own unique charm that I have yet to come across anywhere else, and there are a ton of free things to do in Santa Cruz to make it even more attractive for the average visitor.
How to make a trip to The Big Apple budget-friendly.

From the time I was very little, I remember looking up at the sky every time a plane would fly over me on my daily walk to school.

It became a promise that structured my whole life around when I could travel next.
