Bring Your Love to Santa Cruz

Bring Your Love to Santa Cruz

February 09, 2021

February is the month of love, and what better way to celebrate your loved one than with a trip to Santa Cruz. There is nothing more romantic than a vacation to the Pacific Coast, tailor-made for two. Our retro-chic rooms provide the perfect retreat — with dreamy bedding, coastal decor, and private balconies with sweeping views of the Monterey Bay.

Sample the famous organic wine and Pinot Noir at Hallcrest Winery, geek out on old-school arcade games and classic rides at the historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, or marvel at the towering redwood trees of Big Basin State Park. Sunset beach picnics, lively art walks, and exhilarating zip-lining eco-tours are all on the agenda.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, live music, craft cocktails, and sustainable seafood are all on tap at Jack’s Patio, perfect for outdoor dining in a laid-back environment. Looking for breakfast or a late-night snack from the comfort of your room? Delicious in-room dining and our signature Tiki Cocktail Kits are just a call away. Leave Dream Inn feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and even more in love than before you arrived.
