Come vacation on the sunny side of the Monterey Bay, watch the waves break from your ocean-front vacation rental, lay on our sunny beaches or walk under the towering redwoods.

Santa Cruz is home to a wide array of restaurants, attractions and activities that are sure to suit your vacation needs. From golf, to surfing to hiking, activities abound in the beach side town of Santa Cruz and surrounding towns. Try your hand at sailing or fishing for the first time. Go whale watching in the morning and bird watching in the evening. Then head home to watch the sunset over the ocean from the picture window in your Kendall & Potter vacation rental in Santa Cruz, CA or La Selva Beach or Aptos  – wherever you happen to have selected your home away from home to be.

When your day’s activities are complete, be sure to check out Santa Cruz’s culinary culture which focuses on natural ingredients and a comfortable atmosphere. Santa Cruz has cuisine for everyone – ocean view restaurants, late night dining and bakeries just to name a few. After dinner check out the nightlife in a downtown bar, dance club, lounge or wine bar.

Other Santa Cruz attractions include the Seymour Marine Discovery Center and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk which is California’s oldest amusement park. Interested in shopping in Santa Cruz? Stroll through the outdoor Pacific Garden Mall, visit its eclectic shops and watch the street performers. Want to know more about surfing history? Visit the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum. Or if you want to learn to surf, there are plenty of surf schools at hand. Surfboards, skates, and bikes are all available for rent in various locations throughout the county.

Santa Cruz’s California location is also perfect. It is less than an hour’s drive away from other Monterey Bay towns of Carmel and Monterey, and beautiful Big Sur is a short drive beyond that. To the north, San Francisco is just an hour and a half drive away where you can experience the sights and sounds of a big city. Drive north on Hwy 1 to get there, and you’ll get to experience the beautiful California coastline and jaw-dropping views along the way.
