Lodging opportunities are available all through the area. You can key your location to the particular birds you would like to enjoy. You can book at motels adjacent to our best kept secret - our miles and miles of wetlands, with miles and miles of newly constructed trails and intriguing wetlands birds. Or you can reserve rooms closer to the shore and enjoy the diversity of shorebirds. Or perhaps you would rather stay downtown where you can walk to some of our restaurants. Or perhaps you would like to stay in a bed & breakfast inn. Be sure and ask about the special birding festival rates.Santa Cruz County offers California State Parks and KOA Kampgrounds of America. Be sure to check the State Parks and KOA websites for availability.

The Pajaro Valley is an autumn feast for the eyes - strawberry fields, raspberry vines, apple orchards and artichoke patches. Taste our cuisine, with sumptuous flavors for every palate - Japanese, Thai, Italian, Mexican, seafood, "down home," and continental. You will always enjoy fresh ingredients from our local fields, including a cornucopia of organic produce. Wherever you choose, you will find something just right for a birding weekend. Welcome!
