Getting to Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz is on the central California coast at the north end of Monterey Bay. It can be reached by going south on 17 from San Jose, taking the 1-North exit, and going west on Mission Street.
You can also go south on 1 from Half Moon Bay or north on 1 from Monterey or Moss Landing. Highway 1 becomes Mission Street as it goes through Santa Cruz.
Getting to the lab
