More than a century after a famed trio of Hawaiian princes first surfed in Santa Cruz, their redwood olo surfboards are returning to the Museum of Art & History
It’s ironic that many visitors experience Santa Cruz primarily via car. This area is known for its natural beauty, we have the beach and the redwoods, and yet a vacation here can easily be reduced to a series of car trips—back and forth, here and there, point A to point B. That will certainly get you to a lot of great places in Santa Cruz, but I’ve noticed that a deeper theme has risen from the stories in this Visitor Guide.
Did you know a Santa Cruz man has a vision for completely revolutionizing how we grow our food—and a multimillion-dollar tech company has bought in? Did you know modern homesteaders have found a hub for everything they need to live off the land in Ben Lomond? Did you know there are both pros and cons to growing succulents?
