This is the perfect stop for those taking a drive up or down the California coast. Located in the college town of Santa Cruz these cheerfully colored beach abodes are a perfect backdrop to your summer photos. The small, artsy town has an eclectic mix of locals and tourists. For a Mediterranean feel without hopping on a plane exit Porter Street off of Hwy 1. (Submitted by Sandra Arceo)
