September 2008 - Hello Big Kahuna Club!
Fall is a wonderful time to visit Santa Cruz — the weather is beautiful, the beach is perfect, and there are fewer people around! Within walking distance of the Boardwalk you can catch a surf lesson, jump on a bike or kayak, join a beach volleyball game, or stroll the wharf.
Boardwalk rides are still open on weekends, and the Arcades including mini-golf are open every day.
