We said farewell to summer at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The hour and a half drive was a nice escape from the Bay Area fog as we were greeted with 75-degree weather and the warm sandy beach.
The boardwalk reminded me of a smaller Atlantic City, although the seagulls were nicer and less aggressive. Yes, the same amount of funnel cakes and ice cream vendors. It was very nostalgic of my childhood summers spent at the shore in Jersey (please refrain from sending me any Jersey Shore jokes).
