Voted the World’s Best Seaside Park

Saida Malik – San Francisco

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk holds a special place in my heart, ever since my 5th grade graduation trip when I was just 10 years old. It was my first experience at a theme park, and the thrill of riding the Giant Dipper for the first time is a memory I cherish deeply. The sights, sounds, and sheer excitement of the Boardwalk left an indelible mark on my childhood, making it a place of pure joy and adventure.

Recently, I had the opportunity to revisit the Boardwalk with my daughter. As we walked through the park, the nostalgia washed over me, making me feel like a kid again. We rode the Giant Dipper together, and I captured a photo to commemorate the moment. This picture symbolizes not just a ride on a historic roller coaster but a precious moment shared between parent and child, linking the past with the present in a beautiful, timeless way.
