Au programme

My tour is a 2mile one-way tour. You will start your tour on footpath that runs along the San Lorenzo River next to an old trestle. This is a unique and less visited area that is full of interesting and historical stories. You will then walk along the 150 year old railroad tracks next to the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is one of the oldest amusement park in United States and I have stories that go way back over 200 years. You will walk down the tracks to Cliff street where the tour takes a turn and heads up Beach Hill. Beach Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Santa Cruz. It has an interesting collection of Victorian homes, secrets and stories. Stories about sea captains, serial killers, murders, drag racing, surfers and more. The tour ends at the Las Palmas Taco Bar near the wharf. Each tour is unique and always has room for spontaneous fun adventures that happen along the way. I always add humor, odd facts and sometimes I don't let the truth get in the way of a good story:) By the end of my tour, you will know more stories, old legions and interesting facts about Santa Cruz than a lot of locals do.
Thank you-
Karen

Karen has lived in this part of California for most of her life. As a kid she would bus downtown with her skateboard and explore. Karen's love for Santa Cruz inspired her to start her own walking tour business. "I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day . . . outdoors and meeting new people. You get see things you would never see in a car." When she is not giving tours you can find Karen riding her mountain bike or painting in her art studio.

Le lieu

We will start on the foot-path next to the San Lorenzo River. We'll follow the train tracks that run in front of the Historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Then we will walk up into the Beach Hill neighborhood. The tour will end at the Wharf on Front Street and Beach Street. It is a one-way tour and I suggest parking near the wharf and walking up Beach Street to the start of the tour.

We had a lot of fun on this experience, it was a super good value and a nice little structured activity for anyone doing a day trip to Santa Cruz that loves history. We learned so many new things and ended up going home to do a lot more research on all the interesting stuff Karen taught us. Karen was also really personable and since we were in a small group it felt very close knit and the tour specifically was built around our interests and questions.

Karen was an awesome Tour Guide, she is very knowledgable about all things Santa Cruz. All the interesting information that only locals would be aware of and more..🌟. Myself, and my three kids that did the walking tour with me felt her Tour was an experience that pushed our trip to Santa Cruz over the top to one of our best trips together ever. Take her tour, you won't be dissapointed! Remember to charge your phone or camera fully too, so much beauty to photograph. Thanks Karen 💜😊 ~Michelle

Karen knows parts of old Santa Cruz well and shares her tales well. The dates of early Santa Cruz development are striking to learn since the history goes way, way back. Karen gives a good profile of the people who inhabited those times.

It was a wonderful experience. Me and my 8 year old son were engaged for the entire 2 hours. She had expansive knowledge about the area and had many fun tidbits and stories to share.

Karen shared so many stories about Santa Cruz. We enjoyed learning about the history of the city, the interesting people, and the stories of the buildings. From a Scottish ship captain to cars racing down streets with Victorian homes, it was informative and fun. Karen is a local and knows a lot about the city.
