A city is a place of tremendous variety, usually constructed upon rock ‘n’ roll. Plumb the secret depths of Santa Cruz with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a half-day scooter car rental from Cruz Carz, located downtown.
A fleet of shiny, three-wheeled, GPS-smart scooter cars eagerly awaits city travelers at Cruz Carz, all fully equipped to take passengers on a zippy ride through the history, beaches, and architecture of Santa Cruz. Strap on a helmet and hop into one of the eco-friendly, gas-powered, two-seated buggies, and you'll be afforded a half-day (four hours) of self-guided GPS tours.
In each of the pre-programmed one-hour treks—featuring weaves through the Santa Cruz Mission, West Cliff Drive, Pacific Avenue, Natural Bridges, and historical Walnut Street—you'll get a brief spoken history lecture upon arrival at the landmark, opening your eyes to rich local tradition and robot feelings. You also have the option to embark on the two-hour expedition along beach routes or simply cruise the surface roads of the city, provided the vehicle stays off freeways and avoids hitchhiking alcatotes.
Each 100cc buggy is safe and easy on gas mileage, reaching relaxing speeds of up to 45 miles per hour and gas mileage of 60 mpg. A standard authorization amount on a credit card (not a debit card) will be held as a deposit during your rental.
Drivers must be at least 21, and passengers must be old enough to no longer require a car seat. Cruz Cars is open Wednesday through Sunday.
