Lighthouse Point


There’s lots of monuments that represent Santa Cruz, like the Boardwalk with its Giant Dipper, or the Municipal Wharf, or even the Harbor. But nothing says Santa Cruz like the lighthouse at Lighthouse Point. Home of the world famous surf break known as Steamer Lane, the Mark Abbott Memorial Lighthouse now contains a surf museum.

  1. As a wee child, growing up in Fremont, CA, I have been to Santa Cruz many times (in the Sixties).
    As far as lighthouses….well, I wrote a five or ten page blog post about a lighthouse in Galveston, TX.
