Tips

  • In the SC listen to 102.5 KDON
  • Fun day at the beach. Remember back in the day when the whole family went to the beach? This photo was taken at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk in 1972. Share your photos of beaches and boardwalks.
  • Best time to go is early in the season as rides are freshly painted and staff is still energetic and happy.
  • Wear a Bra if your gonna ride the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster! :)
  • What I love best is the seafood restaurant on the wharf!
  • Developers once hoped this boardwalk would become Californias Coney Island. After more than a hundred years, it is now the oldest seaside amusement park on the West Coast. (From Aerial America)
  • The ferris wheel's gone! WTH!?
  • Ride the double shot and make a crazy face for the picture
