Here's some of the frugal things we did to keep the trip cheap:
*Stayed with a friend on Monday night
*Brought some snacks for the car to save money on overpriced gas station snacks
*Took advantage of happy hour in Santa Cruz and San Jose to save money on meals. Thanks Yelp app!
*Hung out at Fisherman's Wharf, which was free. There was also an old WWII submarine and boat that we saw the outside of and read about for free.
*Stayed in a really crappy hotel. :/
*Walked to Fisherman's Wharf and to AT&T Park. 20+ blocks to each.
*Stopped at Walgreens to buy snacks and drinks for the baseball game
There were some not so frugal moments as well, but why focus on that? Here are some pictures of our quick trip!
|We loved Santa Cruz! We both said we could see ourselves living there someday.|
|We spent $6 to ride on the sky bucket. Totally worth it!|
|Admiring Alcatraz from a distance. We've both already done the tour, |
so we passed on spending the money to do it again.

|This was outside the Wax Museum, so we got a free look.|
|This is my tough face.|
|This was a splurge, because I LOVE crab.|
|Sold out crowd at AT&T Park.|
