City Guide
Santa Cruz
Downtown

Downtown Santa Cruz is a hotspot for many reasons. The old Spanish architecture mixed with newly constructed apartments make for an eye-pleasing abode and the views of downtown, hillside and the beach are an added bonus. Living down here also means proximity to the highway, culture and history, UCSU campus and the beach. The tree-lined streets, public transit options and active neighborhood are added perks.

Beach

Another coveted area in Santa Cruz is, big surprise here, down by the beach. Nearby Lagoon (or the area close to Pacific Ave. and Depot Park) is sought after for its closeness to the wharf, boardwalk and beachy-keen way of life. Minutes from downtown, bursting with independently owned boutiques/shops and restaurants, residents relish their home in this ‘hood. Where else can you wake up and watch morning surfers with a cup of coffee in hand from the comfort of your very own home? The homes here are typically two to three bedrooms, often bungalows, but sometimes large two story dwellings. Apartments lovers here can choose between townhomes or basic apartments, featuring pet parks, picnic areas and sometimes even a picket fence.

West Side

The areas of Seabright Ave. and the west side (near the beach and the highway) are also great options. Featuring bungalows, good schools and walkability to entertainment, these areas are bit more single-family home than apartment living but are excellent choices.

One last mention about surfing

No matter where you choose to hang your surfboard in this city (there ya' go), odds are you will be very happy you did. The residents are as go-with-the-flow as the weather and the living is easy. Good luck finding your own inner-cool (and your new home) in Santa Cruz.
