I'm thinking of bidding Santa Cruz, California for at least a regional meeting. Off-season rates are good, and it's a tourist town with great attractions.

Please reply to this post if you think Santa Cruz would be a good location for a West Coast Regional meeting.

I think it is about time we had a West coast event. Looking at the map I see you are near SF. Would that be a reasonable drive from say LA?

How close is it to Sacramento? It is easier to fly into and out of Sacramento. I have two sisters in California. It was easier for them to pick me up at Sacrmento than San Fransisco. Question

Cool

Santa Cruz is about 150 miles from Sacramento. The best airport for Santa Cruz would be San Jose (a half hour or so). I flew into San Jose a couple weeks ago. It's a nice airport, and the flight cost was reasonable. Another choice would be San Francisco or even Monterey (though the later is not an international hub).

I think this would be a great location, though I am saying that off the top of my head, with no knowledge of the hotel costs (though my stay in Milpitas was reasonable and the hotel was quite nice).

Count me as a thumbs-up!

Thank you for the information. I wonder what the cost to fly from the East Coast to the West Coast would be. I will check out the area too. Cool

I think it's about time for the west coast again, and this time I'd do my best to make the trip. What are Santa Cruz hotel costs like?

Thanks, BigWarpGuy, for posting the hotel link. 45 hotels in a town of 55,000 sounds like a lot, but they missed a few.

First, and by far the cheapest, the Santa Cruz Youth Hostel.

Second, where is the Compassion Flower Inn?

I'm impressed that so many of our famous "dive" hotels made the list.
