Since Santa Cruz is set on a particularly pretty stretch of coast, just about any drive you take in the area could be considered scenic. Mix views of the Pacific up with a cruise along Route 68, which runs alongside the Salinas River or a detour along Route 156, which penetrates the tawny fields of Central Coast farm country.
