Aptos

Along the borders of Monterey Bay in Santa Cruz County you'll find the lovely town of Aptos. Some say that when the Native Americans named this part of the county, they called it Awatos - "Where the Waters Meet." The name honors the spot where two creeks joined before traveling together to the bay. Diverse in its beauty, Aptos gives you the option of redwood forests or sparkling beaches, all within minutes of each other. The mountains are covered with oak, madrone, and one of the world's tallest trees, the coast redwood. Beaches feature over 80 types of shells, as well as otters, sea lions, dolphins and whales. If you are looking for natural beauty, you need look no further than Aptos.

Housing in Aptos is as diverse as its beauty. From rustic mountain cabins in the forest to palatial contemporary homes on the golf course, there is something for everyone.

Students in Aptos are served by the Pajaro Valley Unified School District, which has as part of its mission statement the intention to education and support learners in reaching their highest potential, and indeed they do! Students meet and exceed grade level standards based on standardized testing and graduating seniors from the district gain admission to the best trade schools, colleges, and universities in the nation. The District has aggressively solicited State and Federal funds to improve facilities and has seen almost $170 million in construction of new facilities and modernization projects.

Aptos Village, although small, is well worth a visit. The old Bayview Hotel anchors this quaint shopping district, which comprised mainly of friendly little shops and restaurants. Enjoy a visit the small French-inspired for Sunday brunch or stock up on picnic supplies at the Deli before heading into Niscene Marks Sate Park for an afternoon of exploring the forest.

Aptos is indeed a small town with lots to offer and welcomes you for a visit today.
