Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

When the day isn't just right to hit the beach - the fog has nestled into the sand, there are a few too many sink-nosed sunbathers, or you've become a bum and just have to get off the beach - the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the perfect place to take in some fun.

When the day isn’t just right to hit the beach – the fog has nestled into the sand, there are a few too many sink-nosed sunbathers, or you’ve become a bum and just have to get off the beach – the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the perfect place to take in some fun.

The Boardwalk has one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters in the United States, the Giant Dipper, and that thing is rickety, splintered and screaming. The Fireball, conveniently located next to the Giant Dipper, is my favorite right. Out of control spinning and screaming that may leave you a bit nauseous. There are also the classic rides, like the Pirate Ship, Haunted Castle and Logger’s Revenge.

It’s best to go during the summer at night, when the wood and metal aren’t too hot and your skin won’t turn burgundy. And all Lomographers must be prepared for the out of control, colorful, carnival cheesiness.
