Sip on some Syrah at Bonny Doon Vineyard's tasting room, one of the 12 wineries at Surf City Vintners. Afterward head to...
It may be sunny lately, but we all know what’s about to descend on the city after Memorial Day. So we’ve mapped out a few trips to some of our favorite (warmer) destinations as part of a summer escape series. First up is surfer paradise Santa Cruz:
Where to Book a Room Skip the honky-tonk spots on the boardwalk and check in to the new Hotel Paradox (starting at $140 per night). The interior is woodsy and whimsical, with a front desk made from a eucalyptus tree and ceramic white squirrels scampering up the walls. Then settle into a cozy cabana by the pool. Or hole up in this enchanting AirBnB tree house in the Santa Cruz mountains--a Redwood grows straight through the living room (starting at $125 per night).
Where to Eat and Drink Pick up farm-fresh sandwiches at The Picnic Basket en route to the beach. On your way back, stop by Surf City Vintners, a cluster of 12 charming mini-wineries. For dinner, order some wood-oven-baked local oysters and a stinging nettle farinata pizza at Bantam.
