A pretty awesome town in California. The locals are all cool with you so long as you don't act like the tourist you are, and share their same open mindedness.

However, they're only 'open minded' as long as you share their exact mindset.

It's a great town when you're living there, but once you move away and gain a little perspective, you tend to realize how stuck in their ways all the people are.
Local(at a coffee shop): Pshaw. Look at those girls. They don't know where they're at, obviously.
Ex-Local, looking over, seeing three girls in regular work wear: skirts, high-heels and nice shirts): What are you talking about?
Local: They shouldn't be here with their nice clothes. No one local would ever dress like that. Break out from the mold! This is Santa Cruz, not San Jose!!

A kick-ass town in California. It's in the Monterey Bay area, right on the coast in central Cal. Laid-back, great surfing, awesome local bands (The Expendables, Dub Congress, Antidote). It's also known for all the stoner hippies that live there.

Santa Cruz is known for its accepting and stoned community. It is a great place to live and is home to many pro surfers. but that doesn't mean that you should come and live there. Trannies go home!!!! and by trannies i mean anyone who thinks they, on any god given day can just go out and try to learn to surf, this also includes any one who lives in a valley or san jose.
Josh(with the puka shell necklace):Hey bra lets go hit up some hella' sick waves at cowell's and the lane dude. yah!!!!

Local:SMACK!!!! Get out of Santa Cruz you fucking valley and never come back!!!!

The best city in Bolivia. Also known as Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Beautiful landscapes, cheap alcohol, hot weather and the most beautiful women. Full of culture, dance, night life, people from all over the world. Lots of spanish colony history, old spanish churches, art, musicians, etc. The best food in the fucking world. The best fucking place on earth to have fun.
Pariente, ¬°Bienvenido a Santa Cruz de la Sierra!
Santa Cruz kicks ass.
¬°Viva Santa Cruz, Autonomia carajo!
