Voted the World’s Best Seaside Park

My first Santa Cruz photo, 1958

My parents took me to Santa Cruz when I was 6 months old. My dad’s parents would stay in a little cottage close to the Boardwalk for a month’s vacation, so we would go spend a week there to enjoy the beach and visit them. This became an annual vacation for our family, making tons of fun summer memories.
Here is the first photo taken of my mom Betty Poli and I in the Arcade in 1958.
