Check Out the Green Tortoise on a day trip to Santa Cruz!

So a bunch of us meet-up folks are looking for a way to discover if the Green Tortoise style of travel is right for us and this is our chance! 

For only $20 (half off the regular cost!), all meet-up members can hop on the day trip this coming Saturday 4/26 and meet the owner, ask questions about trips, make new friends, enjoy a lunch prepared by the GT, and soak up the sights of America's favorite scenic California coastline drive. 

Here's the full scoop on the itinerary: 

We'll roll away form San Francisco at 9am and head south to the seaside town of Half Moon Bay, where we can get our latte fix on.  Then, we'll take a stroll through the shade of the silent giants at Big Basin Redwoods. Later, relax and enjoy the dramatic backdrop of the Pacific Ocean as we cruise to everyone's favorite beach town, Santa Cruz. 

We expect to return to San Francisco at around 7pm.  This  depends on traffic conditions, etc so it's an estimate.

Things to bring: Walking shoes, clothes you can layer, hat, sunscreen, etc. (Bring a friend or meet one there!)

Please call the office to reserve your spot - these fill up early!  [masked] ext 1

      Hi Najia, Yes, solo travelers are welcome! Or did you mean to travel separately from our bus? Part of the magic of our trips is traveling together! Plus it takes the hassle out of driving and figuring out where to go. Give us a call if you want to sign up[masked] or[masked] and we can give you more details.Talk to you soon!

    The phone number listed here seems to be incorrect... it's for some kind of chat line.

      Hey Matthew - There is parking in North Beach (where the pick-up location/hostel is) but it's pricey. (San Francisco!)
