It’s time to hit the Boardwalk in an ultra smooth ride like a limo Santa Cruz ride. Gather your friends and family and spend a day at the beach and one of the best amusement parks around. It gets pretty packed on the weekends and over the summer so it’s best to come early to find parking. Buy your tickets for all the rides that the Boardwalk has to offer– like the Giant Dipper, Logger’s Revenge, Cyclone, Speed Bumps, Typhoon, Shockwave and more. And while you’re there, check out The Casino Arcade and Neptune’s Kingdom for pinball, miniature golf, bowling, pool tables and laser tag. There’s fun for everyone of all ages. Buy an all-day pass for the best deal.
The Boardwalk is also full of delicious food like corn dogs, pretzels, garlic fries, cotton candy, churros and restaurants like Dipper Diner, Barnacle Bill’s, Hot Dawgs, Surf City Grill, Fisherman’s Gallery, Barbary Coast and the list goes on and on! There is no shortage of food or places to eat! Once you get your thrill ride fix, run out and relax at the beach and play in the water. Don’t forget to bring your swim suit and sunblock along on the trip. Lay out your beach towel, set up the umbrella and beach chairs and enjoy the beautiful California sunshine. You may want to bring a frisbee or football to toss around. Set up a volleyball net for some fun competition. Be sure to apply a good layer of sunblock at the early start of the day before you even get out of your car. Don’t let a cooler weather fool you. Once you’ve been out at the Boardwalk and beach for an entire day, you are sure to receive a nice sunburn, and you will notice the aftermath of it the next day if you are not prepared! Don’t forget to reapply and have your kids reapply especially after they’ve been in the water.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated throughout the day and bring plenty of water. Going to the Beach Boardwalk can be an all day event and it’s best to be prepared. If you prefer to avoid the crowd and to do more of a beach thing, then we recommend heading further south to Capitola or Seascape. A trip to Santa Cruz does not have to turn into a nightmare with crowds and parking. It can be a great day of fun for all with a little planning and knowing which areas to go.
