I visited my hometown this past weekend for the last time before my travels, and to say a temporary goodbye to my family and friends.
In order to celebrate my last views of Santa Cruz and to serve as a reminder of why I love this place so much, here are a few photos of what home means to me.
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.
