Capitola, California

Capitola, CA, United States
10 Kudos
During a recent trip to visit family near the bay area in California, we decided to take a trek for a day, over to Capitola. My Mother-in-law, mentioned how much she use to love the area and how nice it was, so we thought it would be fun to go check it out as a family first hand. As we pulled in and started driving toward the waterfront, it just felt like an almost Mediterranean town. We found a street parking spot and strolled all over, checking out the shops and loving the vibe of the place.

Definitely a spot i want to come back and spend some more time exploring!
