Best Day at the Beach events are held at the inner cove of C-Street at Surfer’s Point on the beach side of the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Look for the Best Day pop up tents.
Parking: There’s a small free parking lot on Paseo De Playa (north of the Crowne Plaza) or a large free parking structure on the corner of California and Santa Clara Streets. There’s also a 3-story paid parking structure south of the Crowne Plaza on Harbor Blvd – you must pay to park in it. However, you can park there for free IF you stop and get a meal, appetizers, or drinks at the Crowne Plaza – as they’ll be able to validate your parking.
