Shop the Sidewalks of Santa Cruz

Shop the Sidewalks of Santa Cruz

April 06, 2017

Window shopping is a favorite past time for many, but on the last weekend of each month Downtown Santa Cruz brings out the products from behind the glass and puts them right in front of the store-fronts. Stop by for the routine Side Walk Sales event, to catch all of the great month-end deals from the shops that line the downtown area. This monthly ritual has become a fun weekend treat for many hoping to score a good deal while still enjoying the radiant California sunshine. 

The shops at Downtown Santa Cruz have something for everyone. Browse trendy women's clothing or vintage jewelry; you can even grab books or wine while you are out and about. This outdoor shopping experience provides a laid back environment, allowing you to take your time perusing the items without any added pressure of being inside a store. Grab a cocktail and grab your pals, shopping is the perfect post brunch activity.
