This was the aftermath of a trip to Santa Cruz to the World's best Seaside Boardwalk. It has been there since 1907. It's a great place to spend an afternoon-although a liiiiitle busy on a holiday weekend. They also have free concerts on Friday nights.
This is one of my top 2 favorite ice cream places on the West Coast. It's a local spot in Santa Cruz called "Marianne's" They have the best flavors-horchata, 1020 (carmel ice cream, oreo cookies and fudge) northern Oregon Blackberry, Cinnamon, etc.
