Perhaps it’s due to the serene beauty of Santa Cruz or maybe it's the spiritual energy that seems to radiate from the environment, whatever the reason,  Santa Cruz has attracted some of the finest health practitioners in the county.  The difficulty is not finding a fully certified massage therapist, fitness center or quality day spa.  The difficulty is choosing between so many!

The Region’s Fall Advisories:

Traffic Conditions. Rush hour traffic can be extremely challenging – especially along Mission Street and Highway 1 between Santa Cruz and Capitols. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and arrive early and leave late. Go to to learn about road conditions.

Yes, it’s still water, water, water! California is undergoing an extreme drought. If you are planning a lake vacation be sure to check about water levels. That rafting trip, fishing, or skiing can be impacted.

EXTREME fire danger. The drought has created a very dangerous combination of dry vegetation and no moisture in the air to help contain any fire. Please use extreme caution during your trip.
