Come and spend the day at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and settle in afterwards for a great movie or concert on the beach at the Best Seaside Park in the World, and its world-famous Giant Dipper roller coaster, and plenty of kettle corn, corn dogs, ice cream and salt water taffy for the scarfing.

Our Beach Haven at Seabright vacation rental home is just a short walk away from the Boardwalk – no driving, parking or waiting for a cab or über. You should definitely plan a trip to this family-friendly Beach Boardwalk as part of your Santa Cruz vacation getaway. You don't have to plan your summer vacation entirely around watching The Lost Boys on the big screen on a beach where it was filmed, but there isn't really a better place to watch it, is there?

Summer is just around the corner and accommodations are filling up quickly this time of year. Check availability online for your travel dates or call (831) 722-0888 and book early.

 It's going to be a great summer at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!
