Our family of 9 children would go to Santa Cruz just about every weekend. I have such good memory of our time at the beach. We would bbq and play in the sand by day and late afternoon it was time to ride the rides. The Wild Mouse alway scared me and we always wanted to see the Sea Monster come up. (Why? I have no clue.)
Happy 100 years! Now i live in Oregon but when we visit family i now bring my children to ride the rides and visit the Boardwalk.
