Cheap(er) fun: “Retro Nights” at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

July 29, 2014

Looking for an affordable night out for the kids or just looking for a way to feel like a kid again yourself?

That’s what the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk’s so-called “retro nights” are made for.

On Monday and Tuesday nights through the end of summer, all rides at the Boardwalk are just a buck a piece. The deals start after 5 p.m. and run through August 28. Cotton candy, hot dogs and soda are also a dollar each.

It’s a fun way to feel young at heart without breaking the bank. Craving some adult-style refreshments? Purchase a can of Giant DIPA, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery’s special brew in honor of the Giant Dipper roller coaster’s 90th anniversary.  (More about that beer collaboration here.
