Redwoods bus ride may be best value in CAVisiting Santa Cruz anytime soon? If you are, you have a brand new opportunity to combine a tour of the redwoods with a walk along the sea and do it for next to nothing -- just $2.
It's all just started. The weekend bus service to Big Basin Redwoods State Park will transport you from downtown Santa Cruz and up through the gorgeous redwoods for just $2 each way. You'll be able to hike the Skyline to the Sea Trail -- from the redwoods on down to the beautiful Pacific -- or, if you prefer, you can hang out at the park all day and take the bus back downtown.
The hour-long bus ride is one of the cheapest scenic tours you'll find in California. The Big Basin Redwoods State Park is the largest continuous stand of those big ancient redwood trees south of San Francisco.
Santa Cruz is on the California coastline between San Francisco and Monterey. The city is known for its beaches and incredible scenery. There are many miles of coast drives and scenic beaches as well as state parks. Be sure and check out the famous Boardwalk in downtown Santa Cruz.
