Santa Cruz in Photos: Dining Returns to the Wharf

Outdoor dining and social distancing measures reshape local traditions


Diners sit outside Riva Fish House on the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf over the 4th of July weekend.

Numerous restaurants on the wharf have fashioned outdoor dining areas with barricades, signage, railings and potted palm trees. Similar efforts are being made around the country to create space for people to comfortably dine within the six-foot social distancing orders during the coronavirus pandemic.
