Capitola is one of California's oldest resort communities. It began in 1874 when a landowner constructed cottages, bathhouses, a stable and a hotel with the hopes of building a resort modeled after those in Europe. Capitola has also served as a shipping and farming center for the region. Now revamped and reconstructed, Capitola has a gorgeous beach and a cute downtown with shops, restaurants, art galleries and cottage rentals. Residences range from cute cottages, which have been lovingly maintained, to large homes with views of the ocean. West of downtown you'll find modest homes that are well kept with large windows and decks that face the ocean and the beautiful sunsets.

Capitola is home to the largest mall in Santa Cruz County. Here you'll find large retailers such as Mervyn's and Sears.

Children in Capitola attend school in the Soquel district. Those seeking higher education can either take advantage of nearby Cabrillo College or the University of California at Santa Cruz.

After school or work, residents can take advantage of Capitola's three neighborhood parks, the city esplanade beach in downtown, a state park of the west side and a bigger state park on the east side of town. There is an annual begonia festival, as well as an art and wine festival.
