Off-Site Meeting Venues: Landmarks to Live It Up
Meetings become lifetime experiences when hosted in one of Santa Cruz’s most unique meeting venues.
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
The iconic local seaside amusement park doesn’t just feature thrill rides and games for groups galore; they also organize themed party packages – like beach parties, fiestas, and tropical retreats – for groups looking for a day out.
Step back in time to this historic logging town, where steam and diesel trains bring groups on a unique rail experience throughout Santa Cruz County. Book the Moonlight Train Party just for your group and enjoy a nighttime ride that features a chuckwagon barbecue steak dinner, country Western music, and line dancing.
Mount Hermon Adventures
Home to five camp centers for retreats nestled among the towering redwoods, Mount Hermon is the place for zip-line adventures, elaborate ropes courses, and all kinds of other team-building games. Meeting facilities are also available for rental, as well as a conference center (at Redwood Camp), which offers prepared buffet-style meals.
California State Parks & Beaches
Get out of the meeting room and into one of Santa Cruz County’s many state parks or beaches. From barbeque grills and picnic tables at famous New Brighton State Beach to hiking with your group among the 40-acre grove of old-growth redwood trees at Henry Cowell Redwoods, this county has it all.
Spend a day in this quaint seaside beach village shopping, sightseeing, sitting on the sand, wine tasting, and more. Then, conclude your day together with a banquet or business dinner at Capitola’s historic Shadowbrook Restaurant.
