We liked it so much we stayed for most of Tuesday as well... And definetely want to come back.
After our troubles finding a town big enough for hanging out and actually having something to do, our hopes were not really high up for the next day... But oh how wrong we were. After a brief visit to Pigeon Point lighthouse and the first sighting of seal (sooooooo cuuuteeeeee!), we found ourselves in downtown Santa Cruz. And this town really has it all... The people are relaxed and friendly (the lady from the tourist info wanted to put us up, in case the hostel would not have beds available!), there are numerous places with great food (oh the burgers!!! nom nom nom), there is a beachside amusement park with all rides for a dollar (were there on a Monday) and we were lucky enough to catch some free concerts on the beach. The only thing was, there is only one hostel. Business idea? ;)
