Before I head into Santa Cruz, I thought I'd make a stop in the small seaside town of Capitola, a city of about 10,000 people along the Monterey Bay. I had never actually been there before until this past summer, but, it is a very cute, resort, touristy type town with a nice beach. Another great little California town.
Santa Cruz (pop 54,593)
Much like Monterey, its counterpart on the other side of the bay, Santa Cruz is much more than its main tourist destination, the Boardwalk.
A little religion...
Lots of beautiful old homes in Santa Cruz
Of course, no trip to Santa Cruz isn't complete without a stop at the beach and Boardwalk (please excuse the smudge on my lens!).
