nice small town Posted On: 1/21/2008 4:09:12 PM

Felton is a nice small town close to Santa Cruz however I feel it's very expensive and it's past its prime. Recently the bowling alley closed. The transportation is you must have a car as public transportation is only busses that run infrequently and are expensive.

The other remaining attraction is Roaring Camp railroad which is sadly under used and is now a tourist attraction when it once served a useful function.
The only rail line is a Southern Pacific track that runs through Santa Cruz but doesn't carry passengers sadly. The closest Amtrack is San Jose.

I wouldn't waste my time moving here unless you have lots of money. Housing is a real problem with the Universary of California constantly expanding and
students putting a real crunch on the housing market.

It is also very difficult to get any kind building permit. Taxes are high, gas is high. Parking is at a premium. The parks require a fee.
