Wander Down the Wharf

Wander Down the Wharf

February 04, 2018

The Santa Cruz Wharf is a staple of Santa Cruz culture — it is a meeting place, an eating place and an all-around sight seeing place. Stroll along the pier for half a mile out into the beautiful Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Walk to the very end of this timber walkway and you may just find a litter of sea lions or otters and you might just be lucky enough to spot a big, beautiful whale!

There are many local treasures along the wharf and it is perfect for a family outing. With nine fabulous restaurants you can be sure that you will have an amazing view whilst chowing down on the freshest fish in the area. February weather is perfect for a quick pitstop at the Santa Cruz Wharf or make it an all day outing — wander on down to the Wharf to get the full on Santa Cruz experience, the local way.
