We recently spent some fun family time at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California. There is something so sweet and nostalgic about beach boardwalks. One of my favorite dating-my-now-husband memories was a trip we took to Ocean City’s Boardwalk in New Jersey early in our relationship. We also lived as a newly married couple in Rye, New York where we had our own beach boardwalk and Rye Playland. Rye Playland was the amusement park featured at the end of the movie Big starring Tom Hanks.
While we were enjoying the sun and sand at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, I was impressed with the commitment that was shown to the environment. From well placed recycling bins to prohibiting Styrofoam from all the food venues, the thoughtfulness that they put into keeping their environmental impact small was evident.
