Summer in Santa Cruz has so much to offer with lots of free community events. The dining is fine whether it’s food truck fare or four-course farm-to-table.

Take in a play, dance performance or concert.

And on Sunday, honor the Dad in your life. Let him choose from an art class, an outdoor play, brew train, or one of many other options!
