What’s your secret to avoiding the summer swarms?

lt andrewProbably, for me, I would go mountain biking back in Soquel Demonstration Forest or Wilder [Ranch] to get away from the crowds.

Stay indoors on the weekend, but if I were traveling, I would get away from Santa Cruz at a time and hour when traffic isn’t bad. We go to David Wally’s hot springs, and our other favorite place is Calistoga, in the wintertime.

I ty to ride my bicycle as often as possible, to avoid all the traffic. And I like to get out of town, I go up to Downieville because it’s my favorite place to escape to in the summer, where I can go swim in the Yuba River.

Avoid going Downtown on the weekends. I walk rather than drive, and go early in the morning to run my errands.

Go to the beach early, and leave early. We can bike to the beach so we go down to the beach, say, 10 o’clock and be gone by one.
