A Romantic Couple’s Getaway at the Dream Inn

A Romantic Couple’s Getaway at the Dream Inn

February 07, 2022

Looking for the ultimate Valentine’s Day weekend getaway? Look no further because the Dream Inn and Santa Cruz have just what you need to make this Valentine’s a holiday to remember for you and your significant other. Enjoy a romantic stroll along the sun-kissed shore, or venture into Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park to take advantage of Central California’s most beautiful hiking trails. As the Golden State’s oldest still operational amusement park, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk promises thrills for couples of all ages, and entertainment in town abounds with an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, and performance venues (we’re especially fond of Kuumbwa Jazz and the more grandiose Rio Theatre). Back at the Dream Inn, you can indulge in live music, fresh seaside fare, and craft cocktails at the Jack O’Neill Restaurant and Lounge, or retire to the intimacy of your private oceanfront patio or balcony to watch the sun set over Monterey Bay.
