Why You'll Love It
The lights of the Boardwalk, surfers weaving among waves, sand beneath your feet: the Dream Inn feels like something right out of a Beach Boys hit. Santa Cruz’s only beachfront hotel, this spot serves up equal parts retro charm and upscale service.
Spend your days lounging on the beach, kayaking, or taking surf lessons. When the sun sets, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk’s carnival rides and fried treats take you on a stroll down memory lane.
If you’re in more of a foie gras than funnel cake kind of mood, Aquarius—the inn’s fabulous on-site restaurant—offers sophisticated seaside fare.
