The Destination
Travel + Leisure has called Santa Cruz one of America's Best Little Beach Towns, but that's just one side of this city at the southern end of the Bay Area. Throw in some redwoods, a hefty helping of fine food, and a few wineries for good measure, and you've got a perfect mashup of San Francisco and Los Angeles, with more sun and less fog than SF, red-roof Spanish-style houses lining the bustling beaches, and a conspicuous lack of LA-style traffic. One of the best little beach towns? We like to think it's one of the best little towns, period.

The Digs
At the Mediterranean-inspired Casablanca Inn, which was once a private mansion overlooking the coast, you'll be treated to your own private Main Street Bungalow. Each of these sophisticated, romantic abodes is appointed with a king-size bed, rich leather chairs, and elegant wood furnishings, and fully equipped with a private balcony overlooking the Monterey Bay, a full kitchen, and a private bathroom. Your accommodations also come with complimentary Wi-Fi and private parking.

After a day in the sun, head for a short yet captivating journey into the Santa Cruz Alps to the charming little mountain town of Ben Lomond, home of authentic Bavarian cuisine at the Tyrolean Inn Restaurant. Find yourself lost amid the twinkling accordion music, lederhosen, and three fireplaces while dining on gourmet wienershnitzel or tender schweinshaxe (huge portion of meat off of a pork knuckle), and washing it down with a stein of one of eight German beers on tap.

The Diversions
• Catch some rays and play volleyball on the Main Beach, just steps from the inn
• Taste wine from the Santa Cruz Mountains at Bonny Doon Vineyard, just north of town on Highway 1
• Take a hike on the ocean-side walking paths

  • "I loved the fact that the place is not all modernized, and has an older "antique-y" feel. The breakfast served was very good and fresh, nice selection. We will definitely be returning here again and again."
