About This Walk

After parking on the street (by the hour) or in the parking lot of the Boardwalk (all day $20), walk to the front of the first building of the Boardwalk, the Casino  and Arcade to meet our group. We will leave on our walk at 8:30, so be sure to get here between 8:15-8:30. We will walk through the iconic landmark of Santa Cruz Boardwalk, rides don’t open until 11am, so it will be empty. We can take photos of the rides, the buildings, the beach, the seabirds in this area, which I anticipate will take a good hour so there will be plenty of time. Then we will go to the Riverwalk along the San Lorenzo River, and see the railroad bridge, perhaps more birds in the water. We walk along the river for a little bit until we reach a bend in the river, where we can see the buildings in downtown Santa Cruz, then we will go up a few steps to Cliff St, and in the Beach Hill area of Santa Cruz. This area has a lot of historic Victorian houses, so we will stop to admire them and take photos too. We will turn onto Third St and then Main St to head back south toward the beach. If we have time, we can go to the Wharf. The plan is to end up at the Ideal Bar & Grill for some drinks and late breakfast or early lunch as the case may be, and go over the photos you took on the tour. A winner will be selected to win a prize from Kelby. During the walk I will be available to answer questions about photography or Santa Cruz.

I am a professional photographer here in Santa Cruz, I opened my studio Positive Vista Photography & Art in 2007.

You can bring any camera, or just use the camera in your phone! Other things to bring: sunscreen (you may need it) or a hat.
