Santa Cruz, CA
This California spot consistently tops national lists for beach towns and boardwalks, and for good reason: The entire city seriously operates around, well, the beach. The Crow's Nest is an absolute Santa Cruz staple for eating and drinking, a perfect place to further unwind after a long day at Cowell Beach soaking up the sun.
