USS Palo Alto

USS Palo Alto

The USS Palo Alto is a concrete hull ship docked, well more wreaked, at the end of the pier at Seacliff State Beach in Aptos. Brought to Sea Cliff in 1930 to become a merriment destination with a dance floor and even plans for heated swimming pool, the venture failed and the ship ended up abandoned. Today, all that’s left is the decaying hull.
