Welcome to Santa Cruz

Your jumping-off point for journeys into wine country is a rather sleepy place with a pretty main square, an excellent private museum, a smattering of fine restaurants, and, of course, a casino. Other than a cruise around the plaza and an afternoon in the museum, there's not much else to be seen or done here. But it makes for a pleasant base as you head into the countryside for picnics and tastings
