My daughter chose to spend her 16th birthday today here at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. A great choice because it was exactly here, sixteen years ago, where I walked up and down the beach and boardwalk all day long in hopes of finally going into labor. (It worked, by the way.)
Our boardwalk has over 100 years of history and is considered the best in the world. I have loved coming here ever since I was a little girl. I'm a huge fan of the Giant Dipper & the amazing Wurlitzer organs inside the Loof Carousel.
If you visit California, you cannot leave without visiting Santa Cruz.
A fun day was had by all!
