It was summer of 2009 when my family and I went to Sta. Cruz Beach Boardwalk for a 3-day weekend. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an oceanfront amusement park in Santa Cruz, California. It was founded in 1907, it is California’s oldest surviving amusement park and one of the few seaside parks on the West Coast of the United States.
Recently named the world’s “Best Seaside Amusement Park” by industry experts, the 102-year old Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk features both modern and classic thrill rides, restaurants, miniature golf, video game arcades, and family bowling, all located on a mile of sandy beach.
