See Roaring Camp Railroad, for narrow-gauge train tours through the redwoods, with narration about the history of logging in the area. The one that's a circle tour is boarded in Felton, outside of SC.

I love to people watch downtown and visit the small shops and restaurants, other than watching the surfers at the beach.

The Seymour Marine Discovery Center is really great, too:

I come to read interesting posts about things that won't reasonably be found by spending 2 minutes on google. For example, people posting "hey, just went to/tried/visited this fantastic place - if you are anywhere near, stop by" (and not "gee can I take CalTrain to the airport").

First thing you should do before visiting Santa Cruz is to watch Jordan Peele's "Us."
