I grew up in the liberal beach town of Santa Cruz, Calif. So when people hear where I’m from, the first thing they usually ask is, “So, did you go to the Boardwalk a lot?” Well, the answer to that question is "of course," but there is much more to this oceanside city than just surfing, beaches and roller coasters.
By all means -- visit the Boardwalk, it’s a classic amusement park and always a good time. It’s more than 100 years old, but still kicking as the Giant Dipper thrills a new generation of riders. But here are five of my favorite local attractions that will keep you entertained while in Surf City.
