San Jose International Airport (SJC)

SJC is the closest major airport to Santa Cruz and is more convenient to get in and out of compared to SFO. The drive takes you through the redwood-forested Santa Cruz Mountains along winding Highway 17.

Drive time: ~45 minutes

San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

This is the largest airport in our region, and flights in and out of SFO are usually the most affordable. The drive from SFO to Santa Cruz is longer than it is from SJC but gives visitors the perfect opportunity to drive down Highway 1 along the California coast, one of our state's most scenic stretches of road.

Drive time: ~1.5 hours
