Time For Fun
The obvious post-race activity is to take the family to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and enjoy the park. Just down the road at the far end of the run course, families can hike the bluffs of Wilder Ranch State Park or visit the Seymour Marine Discovery Center to explore a bit of marine science. If your schedule permits, hop in the car and head south about 50 km to the Monterey Bay Aquarium or bask in the beauty of the Pebble Beach only a 30 km drive away. Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel also have vineyards open for wine tasting.
Finish your day on the bluffs in the county to take in one of Santa Cruz County’s stunning sunsets. That memory will be among the best souvenirs of your trip.
