The selfie sign of Santa Cruz is here as well. Nice bars around to have a drink and people watch. It was clean and we felt safe and secure. Place to walk about and enjoy the sunshine.

Good place with nice restaurants around. The lake in the square is pretending to be as a beach and the water is really clear and blue. Nice place to chill out a bit!
