2. Stroll Along West Cliff Drive

After you've chowed down on carnival foods, you might want to take a stroll to work off some calories. Head over to West Cliff Drive, a three-mile path that overlooks the ocean. The flat, well-maintained pathway is great for walking or biking, and you can stop off in the numerous scenic overlooks whenever you want a break. It begins at Santa Cruz Wharf and ends at Natural Bridges State Beach, so it's worth it to do the full six-mile round trip for a truly scenic experience. Be aware that it can get crowded on weekends, so consider a weekday trip.
