Santa Cruz, California. Typical California beach town filled with tanned young beach bums, surfers and hard core beach volleyball players. Throw in a boardwalk with thrill rides and fun foods like funnel cake and corn dogs and you have a fun place to spend a few days of summer.
I unexpectedly found myself with a few days off around Independence day and homesick for summer on the Jersey Shore. So, we made an impromptu plan. A cheap hotel room on priceline.com sealed the deal and soon we were on the road to spend July 4th in Santa Cruz enjoying a typical summer day in Cali.

We only managed 3 out of 4 but really enjoyed our impromptu trip. Stay tuned as I take you through our adventures.
