Even though summer is over, Santa Cruz is still about to have another day in the sun.
On film, anyway.
Santa Cruz is one of 18 locations shown in a new California “Dreamers” television commercial that promotes tourism in the Golden State. The 30-second ads started airing nationally this month.
The scene featuring Santa Cruz shows a guitar-strumming girl sitting on the jetty with Walton Lighthouse behind her, as a sailboat cruises the Monterey Bay in the background. The girl pulls a music headset off her ears and asks, “huh?” The scene is part of a quick series of montages with short bits of dialogue.
