The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is located between San Jose and Monterey at 400 Beach Street in Santa Cruz. Founded in 1907, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the oldest surviving seaside amusement park on the West Coast and was voted "World's Best Seaside Amusement Park."

The Boardwalk features more than 34 rides and attractions including two National Historic Landmarks: the Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster and the beautiful 1911 Looff Carousel, plus many scream-inducing thrill rides, gentle kiddie rides, casual restaurants, gift shops, games, indoor arcades, and miniature golf. For an attraction that's over a century old, the Boardwalk only gets better with age. The Giant Dipper wooden coaster, built in 1924, still sends riders whirling through a thrilling set of drops and curves.

The Boardwalk extends along the coast of the Monterey Bay, from just east of the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf to the mouth of the San Lorenzo River. At the western edge of the park lies a large building originally known as The Plunge, now titled Neptune's Kingdom, which contains a video arcade, and an indoor miniature golf course. The boardwalk also offers family friendly events throughout the summer.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a classic seaside amusement park located along a beautiful beach in a friendly beach town.
