We had a lot of fun at the Santa Cruz boardwalk. Great food, lots of stuff for kids to do, and right next to the beach. It's a short walk from downtown Santa Cruz and easy to find parking. This is a great place to have a nice walk and see California in all its glory. Lots of beach volley ball and other events going on.

This place is so much fun! I grew up in LA, so I could only go to the Santa Monica Pier, but the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk has so much more! In most instances, an unlimited-ride pass will serve you well, unless you just want to stroll the boardwalk. Costco or other discount stores should have a good deal, and usually they include some of the additional attractions, like mini golf, laser tag, or bowling.

Crowded and noisy but a great time! A very lively boardwalk right by the ocean in a complete carnival atmosphere.

Always so much fun to take the family for the weekend.....really crowded Easter weekend and excellent weather. ..only downfall, as always, it's a bit pricey. $5.00 ice cream cones but the good thing is you can bring your own food to eat!

Can be raunchy at night, but lots of fun during the day. A bit expensive for tickets though. Loved the carousel. Haven't ridden a ring grab carousel in forever.

This is a decently nice beach area with good cleaning stations for when you are done in the sand. The beach itself must have been under construction because there was debris everywhere. The boardwalk seems fun but mostly geared to pre-teens to teenagers. The drive to Santa Cruz from Livermore was beautiful.

Need more reasons to visit Santa Cruz? 
"Woo-hoo family fun!" 😃 Visit California 
This ultra-mellow beach town has a decided split personality—and both sides are cool. First, there’s the woo-hoo family fun of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, a yesteryear-style esplanade lined with classic roller coasters, arcade games, corn dogs and a historic carousel. Then there’s the downtown Santa Cruz, where local college students browse for vintage and boho chic, and relaxed restaurants focus on organic, local ingredients.
